Will a little home cooking enable the Philadelphia Phillies (73-61, 39-30 home) to get back on track as they begin a three-game series against the Miami Marlins (55-78, 29-40 away)?
Philadelphia comes limping home from a seven-game road trip that saw the Phillies go 1-6 straight up and 2-5 against the runline. However, home life has proven to be much better for Philadelphia. Over the past nine home games, the Phillies are 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATR.
Miami could prove the perfect fodder. The Marlins are 3-12 SU over their past 15 road games. That’s including dropping two of three at Philadelphia from August 9-11.
Oddsmakers are setting the Phillies as -225 home favorites. Philadelphia is 31-24-4 on the total as a home favorite this season.

Luzardo missed all of June and July while on the 60-day IL with a forearm injury. The Marlins are 1-7 in Luzardo’s last eight starts. He’s worked at least five innings in each of his past six trips to the mound.
He’ll be facing the Phillies for the first time this season. Over his career, Luzardo is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA in two starts against Philadelphia. He will be making his first career start at Citizens Bank Park.
Luzardo vs Nola Stats
Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola is 1-3 over his past four starts. He’s allowed 13 earned runs through his last 18 innings of work for a 6.50 ERA. At the same time, he’s struck out 33 against two walks during his past 26 innings on the bump. Nola has allowed five or more earned runs in four of his last nine starts.
Aaron Nola is so confounding. He can be so unbelievably great and, truly, over the years, he’s one of the best in the league. And yet, at times, he is so hittable. I think that’s what frustrates people. They just never know what to expect.

Nola is among the top 1% of MLB pitchers in bases on balls percentage (3.3), the top 7% in hard hit percentage (30.9) and the top 9% in xwOBA (.258). He’s leading the NL in strikeouts/walks ratio (8.64), walks per nine innings (1.2) and shutouts (1).
Against the Marlins, Nola is 2-0 this season and has yet to allow a runner to cross home plate. He beat them 10-0 on June 8 at 4-0 on July 17. Both starts were in Miami. Over his career, Nola is 5-8 with a 3.28 ERA in 19 career starts against the Marlins.

Sounds stupid to say, but this week upcoming is the most critical of the Phillies season. Marlins and Nats at home. If you play well, West Coast trip was a hiccup.If you don’t stabilize things here- then oh boy.

Not only are the Phillies beating the Marlins, they are handcuffing the Miami offense. Through this 6-1 run, Miami has scored just nine runs. The Marlins were shutout twice and held to one run in three other games.
