Recap: Philadelphia Phillies Beat Florida Marlins For Third Straight Win

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Ryan Howard finished 3-for-5 with a three- run homer and tied a season-high with six RBI as Philadelphia built a double- digit lead but held on to top Florida, 10-6, in the finale of a four-game set.

Chase Utley added two hits, two runs scored and drove in two for the Phillies, who took three of four in the series and maintained a half-game edge in the NL East over Atlanta. The Braves routed Pittsburgh, 9-3.

Cole Hamels (10-10) turned in seven scoreless frames, scattering four hits while fanning five and walking one.

Gaby Sanchez hit a three-run blast and Cameron Maybin contributed a two-run double for the Marlins, who have lost four of six.

Andrew Miller (1-1) was tagged in defeat for 11 hits and seven runs over just four innings, boosting his earned-run average to 6.16.


Jimmy Rollins Leaves Game With Tight Hamstring

Jimmy Rollins left tonight’s game in the third inning with a tight hamstring.

He didn’t have his usual burst around third base when he scored on Carlos Ruiz’s(notes) single. Rollins slid at home and slowly walked back to the dugout. He had his head down as he talked with manager Charlie Manuel. He was 2 for 2.

The Phillies say Rollins is day to day.


Recap: Phillies Win, Take Over First In NL East

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Placido Polanco’s eighth-inning two-out RBI single was the difference, as Philadelphia nipped Florida, 8-7, in the third installment of a four-game series.

Logan Morrison doubled twice and knocked in a run for the Marlins, who have dropped two in a row since taking the opener of a day-night doubleheader on Monday. Mike Stanton finished 2-for-4 with a solo shot in defeat.

Jose Veras (2-2) was charged with the loss after allowing the game-winning hit.
