The Miami Marlins have been very strange when it comes to their battles with the Philadelphia Phillies this season. The Phillies of this year are not the same juggernaut they were last year, but for some reason, the Marlins are trying to make them look like that. Yesterday, they specifically made Kyle Kendrick look like a star, and tonight the Fish are hoping to avoid making Roy Halladay look too good in his start against the Marlins' Nathan Eovaldi.

Roy Halladay is not the Halladay of last season, but he is still pretty good. Nathan Eovaldi had the best start of his time as a Marlin so far, striking out four Milwaukee Brewers while walking just one and allowing a homer in five innings. He gave up two runs in his last outing, and that follows another solid outing in which he gave up just three runs in seven innings of work. But you know what? He's still Eovaldi. This may not end well.
