The Philadelphia Phillies have been dealing lately.
In the first two games of their current series with the Miami Marlins, both Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick have been able to shutout the fish, with the bullpen pitching a couple scoreless innings as well on Tuesday.
Now it's Roy Halladay's turn to get the job done. The 35-year-old has had a very average season thus far with a 6-6 mark and a 3.80 ERA. However, he's been nearly unhittable lately. In his last two starts, Halladay has given up just five hits in 15 innings while allowing just a single run.
For Miami, Mark Buehrle will toe the rubber in an effort to stop the bleeding. In his first year with the Marlins, the southpaw is 9-11 with the same ERA as Halladay, 3.80. Unlike Halladay, Buehrle has been knocked around recently. In both of his last two appearances, Buehrle has pitched six innings and surrendered four runs.
If the Phillies can win and the New York Mets lose, Philadelphia would be in a tie for third place in the NL East.
