PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After wrapping up the home portion of the schedule by getting swept by the Mets, the Phillies embark on their final road trip of the season on Monday night, opening a three-game series in Miami against the Marlins.

The Phillies are 71-84 on the season and they are 18-17 since Ryne Sandberg took over as manager for the fired Charlie Manuel. Sandberg had the interim tag removed from his title over the weekend, getting a three-year deal with a club-option for a fourth.

Roy Halladay will make the start for the Phillies in the series opener against Miami. He is 4-4 this season with a 6.71 ERA. Half the right-hander’s wins in 2013 have come against Miami, including his last start. He allowed one run in six innings on Tuesday, earning the victory in a 6-4 Phillies victory. In his career against the Marlins, Halladay is 9-5 with a 3.53 ERA.

Miami counters on the mound with right-hander Nathan Eovaldi. He is 3-6 in 2013 with a 3.79 ERA.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Kevin Cooney of the Bucks County Courier Times about the Phillies and what the future could hold for this team.
