Phillies-Marlins Final Score: Marlins 3, Phillies 2

For the second game in a row, the Philadelphia Phillies fell to the Miami Marlins in Florida, this time by the score of 3-2.

Philadelphia got a good start out of Cole Hamels, who pitched seven innings and only gave up three earned runs. Hamels scattered seven hits and three walks in a losing effort.

It just wasn't good enough against Mark Buehrle, who also went seven innings deep and allowed two runs in the process. Buehrle baffled Philadelphia throughout the afternoon, striking out seven.

Hunter Pence had a terrific game for the Phillies, collecting three hits including a solo home run in the 7th. Carlos Ruiz also added two hits and a run scored.

Giancarlo Stanton (18) got the scoring started with a solo blast off of Hamels in the first, part of his two RBI affair. Jose Reyes also ignited the Marlins offense with two hits to bump his average up to .271.

The Phillies will look to avoid the sweep Sunday with Joe Blanton on the hill against Ricky Nolasco.
