Dickerson drives in five in win

One day after blowing a big lead, Philadelphia rolled to a 9-3 victory Saturday night at Miami.

Cesar Hernandez ended the contest 1-for-4 with a double, two walks and two runs.

Aaron Nola draws the start today for the Phillies as he enters with a 12-3 record, 3.51 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 180 strikeouts over 161 1/3 innings pitched. 

Alfaro homers in defeat

Miami suffered a 9-3 loss at home Saturday night against Philadelphia to drop to 46-82 overall and 26-40 at home. Jordan Yamamoto took the loss as he surrendered six earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and four walks over 3 2/3 innings pitched.

MLB Betting Trends


The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. Philadelphia is 5-1 in the last six Nola road starts.


The Marlins are 16-36 in their last 52 games overall. Miami is 9-16 in its last 25 games versus a right-handed starter.


Nola has been very sharp as of late and after Miami scored 19 runs in the series opener, it's bound to have some underwhelming offensive games and this contest fits the bill. Hernandez has promise, but he's still fairly raw and the Phillies should support their ace enough to notch another win today to take the series.
