The Phillies try to put a horrifying road trip behind them and climb back into the playoff hunt when they open a seven-game homestand tonight against the Florida Marlins. Meanwhile, right-hander John Ennis will start tomorrow afternoon, taking Adam Eaton's turn in the rotation.
Tonight's pitching matchups: Byung-Hyun Kim (8-6, 5.54) and J.D. Durbin (6-4, 6.27). Lineups have been posted: Jayson Werth, Greg Dobbs and Carlos Ruiz get starting nods. The Phils trail the Mets by five games in the NL East and San Diego by three in the Wild Card.
More on Ennis: Ennis finished the year strong at Ottawa and was called up for a second time when rosters expanded. In 37 games, including 7 starts with Ottawa, the 27-year-old was 4-4 with a 3.38 ERA and 83/38 K/BB ratio (88 IP). This will be his second Major League start, the first coming 2002 with Atlanta.
