Saturday night, the Phillies evened the series on a 9-5 win on a handful of great offensive performances, especially from Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. Rollins went 3-for-4 on the night with three runs and Utley went 2-of-4 with two runs and three runs batted in. Roy Halladay (11-8, 4.49 ERA) earned the win for Philadelphia.
All was not well for the Phillies though, who lost first baseman Ryan Howard for the rest of the season with a broken right big toe he sustained when warming up in the on-deck circle.
Despite Philadelphia's struggles this season, Cole Hamels has had arguably the best year of his career. His 16 wins are currently his career best for a season, and he is just four strikeouts shy of setting a personal season record as well.
The Marlins' Nathan Eovaldi is 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA in his three starts against the Phillies this season. The last time he started against Philadelphia was on September 11, when he pitched four innings, allowing five runs on eight hits.
The game will be broadcast on PHL 17 in Philadelphia and on FS-F HD in Miami.
