The Phillies plan to send veteran right-hander Kyle Gibson to the mound in an attempt to end their slump.
Gibson (4-3, 4.53 ERA) is coming off one of his best starts of the season, when he threw seven shutout innings against the host St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday.
Gibson is 0-2 with a 6.50 ERA in three career starts against Miami.
Gibson was one of 10 players for the Phillies who did not make the two-game trip to Canada earlier this week to play the Toronto Blue Jays because they were not vaccinated.
Philadelphia lost both games to extend its losing streak.
The Phillies had an off day on Thursday.
Gibson should be well rested, I hope he performs better rested.
Sandy starts with a K beautiful!
Two outs, just what we ordered, and his second strikeout now Gibson needs to do his half.
O 2 count for Gibson, one two,
