    National League Preview from The Sports Network



    Thursday, May 2nd (All times Eastern)

    Miami Marlins (8-20) at Philadelphia Phillies (12-16), 7:05 p.m.

    Probable Starting Pitchers: Miami - Alex Sanabia (2-3, 4.85) Philadelphia - Kyle Kendrick (2-1, 2.41)

    (Sports Network) - The anemic offense for the Philadelphia Phillies reared its ugly head in a two-game sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Indians.

    They hope a return home will rectify the bats in the opener of a four-game series versus the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park.

    Philadelphia was coming off a sweep of the New York Mets this past weekend and opened a quick set at Cleveland with an embarrassing 14-2 loss. It was no better in Wednesday's 6-0 setback, as former Indian Cliff Lee was charged with five runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings.

    "They pretty much pounded us both games, there's no way around it," Lee said. "They crushed us both games. It was never really close, either one of them. We have to have a little more pride than that and figure out a way to at least get back into games and make it somewhat competitive. Both games, it was never close."

    Domonic Brown had two of the Phillies' three hits and Ben Revere went 1-for-3 in Philadelphia's fifth loss in eight tries.

    The Phillies, who scored 18 runs in the sweep of the Mets, will turn to Kyle Kendrick in the opener with Miami. Kendrick was brilliant in Friday's 4-0 win over the Mets and hurled a three-hit shutout with five strikeouts and one walk. Kendrick is 2-1 with a 2.41 ERA in five starts and has yielded only two runs over the previous three starts, spanning 22 innings.

    Kendrick, a right-hander, has dominated the Marlins in his career and owns a 10-2 mark to go along with a 3.71 ERA in 19 games (14 starts).

    The Marlins will open a 10-game road trip Thursday against Philadelphia, then will head west to San Diego and Los Angeles. They went 3-4 on a recent homestand and failed in an attempt of a three-game sweep of the Mets with Tuesday's 7-6 defeat at Marlins Park.

    Juan Pierre and Justin Ruggiano both had two hits and an RBI, while Chris Valaika drove in a pair of runs. Wade LeBlanc did not record a decision in 5 2/3 innings of work and was touched for four runs and eight hits. A.J. Ramos was dealt the loss for surrendering the go-ahead run in the sixth.

    Marlins manager Mike Redmond was still pleased with the effort.

    "I was very happy with the way we came out swinging the bats," Redmond said. "Guys were aggressive. We jumped on them."

    The 13 hits and just two strikeouts from the lineup weren't enough for Redmond's club, which hopes starting pitcher Alex Sanabia can break out of his recent funk in south Philly. Sanabia has lost two straight and three of four starts, and was last in action Saturday in a 3-2 loss versus the Chicago Cubs.

    Sanabia permitted three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 frames, falling to 2-3 in five trips to the hill with a 4.85 ERA. The right-hander did not record a decision in his only appearance against the Phillies in a 2-1 loss last Sept. 15 at Citizens Bank Park. He was solid through six frames and gave up one run and six hits with five strikeouts and no walks.

    Miami lost two of three at home to Philadelphia from April 12-14 and has dropped nine of the past 12 meetings between the NL East foes.
