The Miami Marlins opened their weekend series with the Philadelphia Phillies with a 6-2 win at Marlins Park. The Fish jumped on Cliff Lee early and chased the lefty after just 4.2 innings of work. Lee gave up all six runs and was hammered by Miami's lineup.

Logan Morrison knocked in the first run in the bottom of the opening inning, sending a ground out to the pitcher that scored Jose Reyes. Miami added two more in the third with a four-hit inning. Giancarlo Stanton started the rally and singled home Hanley Ramirez. After back-to-back singles, Stanton came home on a bases-loaded sac fly by Omar Infante. Justin Ruggiano and John Buck knocked out Lee in the fifth by adding three more. Ruggiano got a hold of one and doubled home both Morrison and Stanton to open things up.
