In game three of the four game set, the 24-25 Philadelphia Phillies will try and take a 2-1 lead in the series Wednesday night over the 23-25 Miami Marlins.

Here’s what to watch:

Nola day

Since Aaron Nola threw the first nine-inning shutout of his career April 18 against the St. Louis Cardinals, he hasn’t been the same. Nola is 2-3 with a 5.19 ERA in six starts since that day. The Phillies are 2-3 in that stretch.

Overall, Nola is 3-4 with a 3.94 ERA this season.

Who the struggling Phils offense will face

The Phillies win Tuesday night despite only knocking two base hits in the ball game.

The struggling offense will face Nick Neidert Wednesday.

Neidert has one career scoreless relief appearance against the Phillies.

He’s given up eight earned runs in his last two starts (7 2/3 combined innings).
