Marlins Phillies Betting Preview

The visiting Marlins hope to rebound from yesterday's loss here and steal a win at Citizens Bank Park against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Miami puts its faith in starter Mark Buehrle to earn a win and boost his personal mark of 0-1. Getting the ball for the Phillies is Joe Blanton, the durable righty.

Blanton faced the Marlins three times the past two seasons and won each time. Meanwhile, Buehrle has only faced the Phillies a few times in his career after coming over from the AL.

Philly won its lone start this season vs a LH starter.
