With just 14 games remaining in the regular season, the Marlins still sit six games back in the wild card race and are in desperate need of a victory on Sunday.
Andrew Cashner (5-11) will get the start for Miami and hasn't performed well since joining the club at the trade deadline. He's (1-4) and has a 4.86 ERA in his nine starts for the Marlins. Cashner was completely lit up in his last start versus the Braves, allowing seven runs on six hits in just 2.0 innings of work. On the other hand, he had his best start of the season the last time he face Philadelphia on September 7. Cashner was dominant allowing four hits and no runs in 5.1 innings.
Philadelphia will have Alec Asher make his third start of the season in attempt to secure its first sweep of the season. Asher has been phenomenal in his first two starts allowing six hits in 12.1 innings with a 1.46 ERA and .81 WHIP.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:35.
