Visit Phillies Nation for full gameday.

Florida Marlins (57-53) at Philadelphia Phillies (61-47)

Josh Johnson (10-2) vs. Jamie Moyer (10-8, 5.55 ERA)

The Phillies need to avoid the sweep against the Florida Marlins. A loss would cut their lead in the division to just four games.

The offense has struggled, especially with runners in scoring position. It will not be an easy task against Josh Johnson. In his last start, Johnson had one bad inning against the Washington Nationals. He gave up four consecutive hits before recording an out and the Marlins ended up losing. Overall he has a 3.66 career ERA against the Phillies.

The Phillies have their fisherman, Jamie Moyer on the mound. Moyer pitched seven shutout innings against the Fish in July. While the rotation and Moyer's future remains up in the air, Moyer is 13-2 with a 2.83 ERA against the Marlins in his career.
