Miami Marlins Sign a new Big Head Coach form Philadelphia Phillies…

The Philadelphia Phillies (54-29) will look for more offense when they close out their series against the Miami Marlins (30-53) at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon. After dropping two of three, the home team hopes to salvage a series split before heading out on a six-game road trip.

After the bats were bailed out by Cristopher Sánchez’s complete-game shutout on Friday night, the lineup couldn’t muster enough to overcome the Marlins’ three runs on Saturday. The Phils managed just five hits and struck out 10 times in the 3-2 loss. Garrett Stubbs chipped in with a solo home run, but the Phillies need the top of the order to step up today.

Aaron Nola took his fourth loss of the season after pitching 6 2/3 innings, charged with three runs on six hits while striking out nine. Matt Strahm allowed the winning run to score when he came on in relief in the seventh.

The Phillies’ depth is being tested without Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber and J.T. Realmuto, and so far, the early returns aren’t encouraging.

Ranger Suárez (10-2) gets the ball for the Phillies today. He brings his MLB-best 1.83 ERA and NL-leading 0.92 WHIP into his 17th start. The lefty shut out the Marlins when he faced them in May, holding them to three hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings.

Yonny Chirinos (0-0) will counter for the Marlins. The 30-year-old right-hander has a 2.70 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in two starts this season. He has gone five innings in each of his previous outings, allowing three earned runs on 11 hits over 10 innings while striking out 11 and walking three.
