The Marlins, meanwhile, have cooled since their own torrid spring burst, but continue to hang with those selfsame Phillies atop the National League East. Jorge Cantu is among the league leaders in RBIs, Josh Johnson is pitching like the second coming of Randy Johnson, and the Marlins still do more with less money than anyone else in baseball. Plus, the good news for Marlins fans: L.A. only loses on the road. Get a possible playoff preview in the three-game series against L.A.: Friday at 7:10 p.m., Saturday at 6:10, and Sunday at 1:10 at Dolphin Stadium (2269 NW 199th St., Miami). Tickets start at $12, and while you can always walk up, you can also reserve them at florida.marlins.mlb.com or by calling 954-523-3309.
