Currently the Phillies are in Colorado in the 7th and losing to Philadelphia 5-2 in the bottom of the 7th. A sweep of Colorado puts them 8 games behind the Padres and 5 games behind San Francisco in the NL Wild Card. Later tonight, the Giants play the Florida Marlins at 7:15. Barry Zito (8-5, 3.45) goes up against Ricky Nolasco (10-7, 4.50) Nolasco is 1-2 lifetime vs. San Fran with a 2.05 ERA with a .215 opponent batting average. Unfortunately, Zito has has the Marlins no. - he's 5-0 lifetime against Florida with a 2.15 ERA, and the teams opposing hitters are batting below the mendoza line of .197. Here's hoping the Marlins break this syle of domince by Zito and the Phillies knock the Rox down another notch.
Go Phillies and Marlins!
