Encore Game on Fox Sports Florida

History will note that on May 29, 2010, Roy Halladay tossed the 20th perfect game ever in the Major Leagues. Halladay’s performance for the ages came at the expense of the Marlins, as the Phillies won 1-0.

What occurred the next day has pretty much been forgotten. There wasn’t anything historical, but what took place still was impressive.

The Marlins rebounded from being blanked by Halladay by posting a 1-0 win of their own.  Anibal Sanchez, who no-hit Arizona as a rookie in 2006, combined with Taylor Tankersley, Clay Hensley and Leo Nunez for the shutout. Sanchez scattered three hits, and the Phillies managed just four all afternoon. 

Marlins fans have a chance to revisit that gem at noon on Wednesday as part of Fox Sports Florida’s Encore Games package.

This May 30 game matched Sanchez against veteran Jamie Moyer, who has enjoyed years of success against Florida.

The Marlins needed six hits to win the game.

The Encore Games package is a reminder that Spring Training is swiftly approaching. Marlins pitchers and catchers begin workouts at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., on Feb. 18. Full-squad workouts start on Feb. 22.

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.
