Final Score: Philadelphia 4, Miami 1
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Domonic Brown
each clubbed a solo homer to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-1 win over
the Miami Marlins in the second installment of a four-game set at Citizens
Ben Revere added an RBI single and Carlos Ruiz scored a run for the Phillies,
winners in five of their last seven games.
"Hopefully those three-run homers and two-run homers will come. If we start
putting runners on those will come. We'll take those solo homers, though, and
we'll keep trying to manufacture runs," Howard said.
Jonathan Pettibone (2-0) surrendered just one run on five hits without walking
a batter over 6 1/3 innings to pick up his second straight win. Jonathan
Papelbon worked a perfect ninth inning to earn his fifth save of the season.
Donovan Solano went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and Marcell Ozuna added two
hits, including a double, for the Marlins, who have dropped 11 of their last
14 meetings with the Phillies.
Ricky Nolasco (2-3) allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings to absorb
"Ricky did a nice job. He kept us in the game and executed his pitches. He
gave us a chance, but we need to start doing a better job of putting some runs
up," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.
Howard opened the second frame with a homer and Revere smacked a base hit to
right field to score Ruiz. Ruiz reached on a base hit and stole second before
coming around on Revere's single.
Utley's leadoff homer in the third put the Phillies in front by three, but
Solano cracked a leadoff homer of his own in the fourth to make it 3-1.
Brown's leadoff homer in the fourth accounted for the final margin.
Each home run was hit by a leadoff hitter ... Howard and Brown homered in
back-to-back games ... Philadelphia is 39-20 against the Marlins since the
beginning of the 2010 season ... Nolasco is 6-2 over eight career starts at
Citizens Bank Park.
