Marlins Vs. Phillies Final Score: Miami Scores 6 In Eighth To Win 9-2

The Miami Marlins scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to make it difficult for the Philadelphia Phillies to comeback in the ninth. In that eighth inning the Marlins burned through three Phillies relievers starting with a RBI double by Giancarlo Stanton, and then a two-RBI single by pinch hitter Austin Kearns.

That made it 6-2 and then after a few more batters reached base, Bryan Petersen hit a two-RBI double to extend the Marlins lead to 8-2. The final run in the inning came on a RBI single by Gorkys Hernandez which scored Petersen.

The Phillies were shutout in the top of the ninth inning by Marlins relief pitcher Ryan Webb who pitched a perfect inning to end the game.

Marlins Vs. Phillies: Offensive Woes Continue In 1-0 Loss

With last place in the NL East on the line and the offense in the midst of an epic slump that saw them go scoreless in their last two games, Josh Johnson threw a gem on Tuesday night.

It still wasn't enough, as the Marlins lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0, giving them 27 straight innings without a run.

Johnson allowed a lead-off HR to Jimmy Rollins in the first and was then virtually flawless over the next eight innings. He allowed only three more base-runners -- two hits and a walk -- while striking out seven.

However, his one mistake was all Kyle Kendrick needed. The 27-year old has had an up-and-down 2012, with a 4-9 record and a 4.53 ERA, but he threw an absolute gem on Tuesday. Kendrick allowed five hits in seven innings while striking out six and not issuing a single walk.

The top of Miami's lineup -- LF Bryan Peterson, CF Justin Ruggiano, SS Jose Reyes and 1B Carlos Lee -- all had one hit, but they couldn't string an inning together. With the loss, the Marlins fell to 52-65, 2.5 games behind the Phillies.

Marlins Vs. Phillies Lineups: Josh Johnson Pitches As Bryan Peterson Leads Off

The Miami Marlins are still trying to fight their way out of the National League East basement. They get a chance to close the gap on Tuesday night when they take on the Philadelphia Phillies. Josh Johnson (7-8, 3.88 ERA) will start for a Marlins team that will have a slightly different look, as manager Ozzie Guillen makes a few changes to the batting order.

The most notable shift comes at the top of the order, where Bryan Peterson, who came on as a pinch hitter in Monday's 4-0 loss, will start in left field and lead off. Second baseman Donovan Solano, who led off Monday's game, will bat seventh.

Here is the rest of the Marlins' batting lineup.

1. Bryan Petersen (L) LF
2. Justin Ruggiano (R) CF
3. Jose Reyes (S) SS
4. Carlos Lee (R) 1B
5. Giancarlo Stanton (R) RF
6. Greg Dobbs (L) 3B
7. Donovan Solano (R) 2B
8. Rob Brantly (L) C
9. Josh Johnson (L) P

The Phillies, on the other hand, will send pitcher Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86) to the hill. The only major difference in the batting lineup for the Phillies will be catcher Brian Schneider catching for Kendrick.

Here is the complete lineup for the Phillies:

1. Jimmy Rollins (S) SS
2. Juan Pierre (L) LF
3. Chase Utley (L) 2B
4. Ryan Howard (L) 1B
5. Domonic Brown (L) RF
6. John Mayberry (R) CF
7. Kevin Frandsen (R) 3B
8. Brian Schneider (L) C
9. Kyle Kendrick (R) P

The game is scheduled for a 7:10 p.m. first pitch from Marlins Park.

Marlins Vs. Phillies: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After losing the first of a three-game set to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Miami Marlins will try to even it up on Tuesday with Josh Johnson on the mound.

With the Marlins in danger of becoming the NL East long-term cellar dweller for the year, Johnson is charged with turning the tide against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 28-year-old is 7-8 with a 3.88 ERA, certainly respectable but not the dominant starter Miami was hoping for this campaign.

Johnson took the loss in his last start which came against the New York Mets. The right-hander only went six innings while allowing three runs, eight hits and two walks.

Opposing him will be Kyle Kendrick, who has had a tough struggle all year. The reliever-turned-starter is 4-9 with a ballooned ERA of 4.86 and a high 1.49 WHIP. In his last appearance, Kendrick only lasted 3.1 frames against the Atlanta Braves, who touched him up for six runs on seven hits.

In his only start against the Marlins back on June 1, Kendrick pitched well surrendering just two runs in 5.1 innings.

Marlins Vs. Phillies Final Score: Philadelphia Wins Easily, 4-0

On a night when the Miami Marlins were trying to escape last place in the NL East, they couldn't even score a run.

The Philadelphia Phillies shut out Ozzie Guillen's club, 4-0, behind the superb pitching of Cole Hamels. The southpaw pitched a complete game, allowing just seven hits and a walk while striking out five.

Hamels only threw 28 balls compared to 85 strikes, getting ahead 24 of 33 times on the first pitch to batters.

Nate Eovaldi was decent, but not good enough. The youngster was tagged for three runs (two earned) in five innings while surrendering eight hits and three free passes.

Donovan Solano and Jose Reyes were the only Miami players who had multi-hit games, each collecting two apiece. Giancarlo Stanton had the only extra-base hit, a double in the ninth.

The Phillies were sparked by Juan Pierre, who recorded three hits, including a triple. Domonic Brown, John Mayberry and Kevin Frandsen each had two hits as well.

On Tuesday, Josh Johnson takes the mound in an effort to turn the tide for Miami.
