Phillies Vs Marlins: Joe Blanton Takes The Hill In Rubber Game

The Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins will conclude their three-game set at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday (1:35 p.m. ET on PHL 17). Veteran Joe Blanton (4-5, 5.05 ERA) takes the mound for the Phils' and will oppose Carlos Zambrano (3-3, 3.00) in the rubber match of the series, which has featured Philly winning Game 1 (6-4) but losing Game 2 (5-4).

The Phillies (28-26) are hoping Blanton can returns to his early-season form and rebound from his last three starts that have featured him compiling a 12.56 ERA. Meanwhile, Zambrano is coming off a solid effort against the Washington Nationals.
