Phillies still chasing top spot in NL East

Sep 8, 2008 - 1:52 PM Florida (72-71) at Philadelphia (78-64), 7:05 pm EDT

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- After splitting their most important doubleheader of the year, the Philadelphia Phillies face the Florida Marlins on Monday.

The Phillies sit two games behind the division-leading New York Mets (80-63) in the National League East with 19 contests remaining for both clubs.

Philadelphia failed to gain ground on the Mets on Sunday, winning the first game of the doubleheader, 6-2, before suffering a 6-3 loss to New York in the night cap.

Joe Blanton (1-0, 4.34 ERA) will try to help the Phillies pick up one-half game in this one.

Blanton is making his 10th start with Philadelphia since being traded from the Oakland Athletics before the deadline. The 256-pound righthander went 5-12 this year before changing leagues.

The Marlins send righthander Anibal Sanchez (2-3, 5.54) to the mound. The 24-year-old Sanchez is making his eighth start of the season after missing most of the campaign recovering from surgery on his torn labrum.
