Phillies Vs Marlins: Roy Halladay Faces Josh Johnson

After an off day in the middle of the series, the Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins are back at it Wednesday evening.

It's an incredible pitching match-up with Roy Halladay making his home debut for 2012 while the Ozzie Guillen-less Marlins will send Josh Johnson to toe the rubber.

Halladay looked unbeatable in his 1-0 win on Opening Day against Pittsburgh, going eight innings and striking out five while allowing only two hits.

Johnson on the other hand was dealt a loss by the Cardinals, who amassed 10 hits in just six innings off of the hulking right-hander.

With the circus surrounding the Marlins thanks to their manager proclaiming his respect for Fidel Castro (before retracting it in a press conference on Tuesday) it will be intriguing to see if they can focus.

The Phillies need to find a way to produce some offense. With Ryan Howard and Chase Utley out for the foreseeable future, other guys need to step up in a big way.

So far, Philly has only hit one home run as a team courtesy of Hunter Pence. The pitching will keep them in most games but the offense can't be completely anemic as it has been so far.

Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
