Afternoon Annihilation - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach MLB Rotation #971 Monday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Phillies Money Line (+) @ Miami Marlins @ 4:10 ET - Even with yesterday's double-header sweep, the Marlins are still just 6-11 at home this season. Miami did leapfrog the Phillies in the standings courtesy of yesterday's sweep. That said, I look for Philadelphia to return the favor with a win here. Simply too much value here to pass up in terms of grabbing an underdog in a great spot against a team that, yesterday notwithstanding, is truly not very good. Before the sweep yesterday the Marlins had lost 20 of 34 games. The Phillies had won 14 of their last 20 games prior to getting swept yesterday. Also, Velasquez gets the start here and struck out 9 in just 5 innings in his most recent start. He is a very talented pitcher capable of getting hot (and growing in confidence) at any moment and this could be another one of those strong stretches beginning for Velasquez. As for the Marlins Lopez, he is off back to back horrific outings and has allowed 12 earned runs in less than 6 innings of work spanning those two starts. More of the same here and the Phillies get a huge lead in this one and never look back. 10* PHILADELPHIA
