Marlins set series rotation

With the All-Star Game completed, the Marlins rotation for their four-game series with the Phillies also has been set.

The Marlins will send Chris Volstad to the mound on Thursday against Philadelphia’s Jamie Moyer.

In the remaining three games, Florida will go with Ricky Nolasco on Friday night, Josh Johnson on Saturday night, and left-hander Andrew Miller on Sunday.

The Marlins had been waiting to see where they’d slot Johnson, who was at the All-Star Game. Johnson comes off a victory last Sunday at Arizona, and he would have been lined up to start on Friday.

Even though he didn’t pitch for the National League on Tuesday night in the All-Star Game, the right-hander is getting an extra day of rest for the big showdown with the Phillies.

Philadelphia is starting Cole Hamels on Friday, Joe Blanton on Saturday and J.A. Happ on Sunday.
