Philadelphia at Miami
When: 1:10 PM ET, Sunday, July 15, 2018
Where: Marlins Park, Miami, Florida

The Philadelphia Phillies lost Saturday's contest at the Miami Marlins and also won't have their scheduled starter for the finale of a three-game series Sunday afternoon. Zach Eflin was set to start the Phillies' final game before the All-Star break but was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a blister.

Enyel De Los Santos, a highly-touted prospect who was solid in his debut Tuesday at New York, will get the start instead. Philadelphia was 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base in Saturday's 2-0 defeat, falling to 6-4 on its 11-game road trip leading into the break. The Marlins received early RBIs from Starlin Castro and Martin Prado and four pitchers combined to scatter eight hits as they won for the seventh time in their last 11 home games. Jose Urena seeks his first victory at Marlins Park this year when he gets the start Sunday for the hosts.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Phillies RH Enyel De Los Santos (1-0, 4.26 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Jose Urena (2-9, 4.13)

De Los Santos gave up three runs and five hits with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings to earn the win against the Mets in his debut. He walked three and did not allow a home run in a 94-pitch effort. The 22-year-old missed the Triple-A All-Star Game because of the outing and will now be replaced on the World Roster for the Futures Game - scheduled for Sunday in Washington - due to his need to fill Eflin's spot.

Urena allowed two runs over 10 2/3 innings in his first two starts since coming off the disabled list earlier this month. Both of those outings came at home, where Urena is 0-7 despite a respectable 3.82 ERA in 11 starts. The Dominican Republic native stymied the Phillies in seven innings of a hard-luck loss earlier in the year.

WALK-OFFS

1. Marlins All-Star C J.T. Realmuto is 0-for-6 in two games since coming off the paternity list.

2. Phillies LF Rhys Hoskins is homerless in 13 games this month after slugging eight in 20 games during June.

3. Philadelphia is 18-20 against National League East opponents and 35-21 against all other teams.

PREDICTION: Phillies 5, Marlins 4
