Phillies flat, fall to floundering Marlins

 

The Miami Marlins’ record might not be so bad if they played the Phillies more often.

The Marlins have now beaten Philadelphia four times so far in 2013. They have a major-league low 13 wins on the season, meaning wins over the Phillies account for nearly a third of their victories.

Starting pitcher Cole Hamels was once again a victim of the Phillies’ lackluster offense in Miami on Monday. Hamels only allowed two runs in six innings, but left the game trailing 2-1.

The Marlins (13-32) tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the eighth against Phillies relievers.

Domonic Brown provided the only scoring on the night for the Phillies (21-24), smacking a solo home run in the second inning. It was Brown’s team-leading eighth home run of the year.

Hamels struck out 10 Marlins batters in his six innings of work. He did not walk anyone and allowed seven hits in falling to 1-7 on the season.

Former Phillie Placido Polanco was 2 for 4 on the night, scoring two runs.

The Phillies are now 1-9 in games started by Hamels.

Alex Sanabia picked up the win for the Marlins. He pitched 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball, allowing seven hits while walking one.
