PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After that disastrous series in Cleveland, the Phillies desperately needed to turn things around and last night the hapless Miami Marlins proved to be just the right tonic for what ailed them.

The Phillies won the opener of this four-game series 7-2 behind strong pitching from Kyle Kendrick and three hits, including a home run, from Domonic Brown.

On Friday night, the Phillies will look for another win over the 8-21 Marlins at Citizens Bank Park as they give the ball to rookie right-hander Jonathan Pettibone.

This will be the 22-year-old right-hander’s third MLB start since being called up from AAA Lehigh Valley in April to replace the injured John Lannan in the rocation.  So far, he has hung in there, going 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA.  In 10 2/3 innings, Pettibone has allowed five runs on 13 hits.  He has struck out ten and walked just two.

The Marlins will counter on the hill with RHP Ricky Nolasco who is 2-2 this season with a 3.82 ERA.

The Phillies come into play 13-16, they are 4 1/2 games behind the first-place Braves in National League East.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke to the pride of Malvern Prep, Comcast Sportsnet’s Ben Davis, about tonight’s match-up.
