Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (23-25, +14 RD) vs. Phillies (24-25, -16 RD) game thread. This rivalry has been lopsided as of late, with the Marlins winning six of the last seven series between them.

Notes: The Phillies lineup is compromised without J.T. Realmuto (left hand contusion) and Bryce Harper (left forearm contusion)...Nola is eight away from reaching the 1,000 career strikeouts milestone.

Marlins Lineup

  1. CF Magneuris Sierra
  2. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  3. LF Corey Dickerson
  4. RF Adam Duvall (Garrett Cooper scratched with oblique tightness)
  5. C Jorge Alfaro
  6. 2B Isan Díaz
  7. 3B Jon Berti
  8. SS José Devers
  9. RHP Nick Neidert (6.75 ERA, 8.06 FIP, 14.0 K%, 43.2 HardHit% in 12.0 IP)

Notes: Neidert is on seven days’ rest and worked six scoreless innings in his most recent Triple-A start. Shawn Morimando was designated for assignment as the corresponding move to get him on the active roster...Jazz Chisholm Jr. (right ankle sprain) is considered day-to-day. No injury concerns with Miguel Rojas—simply getting a partial day off against a pitcher he has historically struggled against...Tuesday was only the fifth time ever that the Marlins lost when allowing two hits or fewer. Hadn’t happened since 2011...Everybody should be available out of the Marlins bullpen for this game.
