The Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies will face off in the series finale of their three-game set, with Tom Koehler taking the mound for Miami out at Citizen's Bank Ballpark!

Pitching Matchup
Team Starter ERA FIP ZIPS Projected ERA
PHI Jeremy Hellickson 4.12 4.58 4.70
MIA Tom Koehler 5.14 4.57 4.27

Hellickson has been surprisingly striking out a ton of hitters despite not being that type of pitcher ever in his career. Tom Koehler has pitched well in terms of run prevention the last few starts, but one of them was an ugly five-walk effort while the other was an eight-strikeout strong outing.

Today's Lineups

Derek Dietrich - 2B David Lough - RF
J.T. Realmuto - C Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Christian Yelich - LF Andres Blanco - SS
Giancarlo Stanton - RF Ryan Howard - 1B
Marcell Ozuna - CF Maikel Franco - 3B
Justin Bour - 1B Cameron Rupp - C
Chris Johnson - 3B Tyler Goeddel - LF
Miguel Rojas - SS Jeremy Hellickson - RHP
Tom Koehler - RHP Peter Bourjos - CF

- Good Koehler or Bad Koehler seems to be the question. It's a trick: they're both not great, but here's hoping we get a good outing today more like his start two times ago.
