Marlins Vs. Phillies Final Score: Phillies Complete 3-Game Sweep 3-1

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 3-1 on Wednesday, completing a three-game sweep. It was the seventh win in a row for Philadelphia, which crept within 3.5 games of an NL Wild Card spot with the win. Jimmy Rollins scored twice and notched three RBIs for the Phillies. Carlos Lee went 2-for-4 with an RBI for Miami.

Starting pitcher Cliff Lee picked up the win for the Phillies. Lee scattered one run across four hits over seven innings. Miami starter Josh Johnson picked up the loss. Johnson pitched solidly, only allowing three runs and four hits in seven innings, but was done in by poor run support. Lee rose to 5-7 on the season, while Johnson fell to 8-12. Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 34th save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning.

The Marlins returns home Friday to start a weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds. Philadelphia travels to Houston tomorrow for a four-game series with the Astros.

Marlins Vs. Phillies Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Starters

The Philadelphia Phillies are back at .500 (71-71) for the first time since early June, and they'll look for their eighth straight win when they host the Marlins Wednesday afternoon.

The red-hot Phils will send Cliff Lee to the mound, in search of his sixth consecutive quality start. Over his last five starts, he has lowered his ERA from 3.85 to a respectable 3.50, while averaging almost eight strikeouts per start.

The Marlins will counter with Josh Johnson, who has rebounded nicely from an injury-shortened 2011 campaign in which he made just nine starts.

The surging Phillies are now just four games out of a wild-card spot, and they got their All-Star catcher Carlos Ruiz back on Tuesday. The Marlins will look to avoid a sweep on Wednesday.

The game is scheduled to start at 4:05 ET, and can be found on FSFL.

Marlins Vs. Phillies Final Score: Miami Drops Second Straight To Philadelphia, 9-7

A late rally proved too little too late as the Miami Marlins dropped their second straight game to the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-7, as starter Nate Eovaldi was only able to go four innings against the Phillies lineup.

Eovaldi got in trouble early, loading the bases in the first inning. Despite forcing Ryan Howard to ground into a double play to surrender only one run, hits from Carlos Ruiz and Domonic Brown allowed the Phillies to score three in the first inning.

After Marlins pitching combined to give up eight runs in six innings, the Marlins stormed back into the game with a four-run seventh inning. Their burst of runs chased Phillies starter Roy Halladay and nearly evened the game at eight.

But after a Jimmy Rollins sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, his third RBI on the night, put the Phillies up 9-7, the Marlins could not make another comeback and ultimately dropped their second straight.

The Marlins wrap up their three-game set with the Phillies tomorrow.

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

The Miami Marlins will look to even the series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

It's been a rough year for Ozzie Guillen and his club, looking up at the rest of the National League East with just a few weeks remaining in the campaign. However, a strong finish is still possible, starting with this game and Nate Eovaldi on the mound.

Acquired in the Hanley Ramirez trade from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Eovaldi has been inconsistent with a 4.44 ERA on the year to accompany a 4-11 record. In his last start, the 22-year-old pitched well against the streaking Milwaukee Brewers. Eovaldi allowed just two runs on six hits while taking a hard-luck loss.

Roy Halladay will get the ball for the Phillies. The ex-Toronto Blue Jay is having a solid if unspectacular year, with a 9-7 record and a 3.87 ERA. Finally healthy once again, Halladay has shown flashes of excellence. In his last outing, the veteran only gave up one run in 7.1 innings against the Cincinnati Reds.

Marlins-Phillies Final Score: Miami Can't Solve Kyle Kendrick In 3-1 Loss

The Miami Marlins couldn't overcome the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of their series at Citizens Bank Park, losing 3-1 on Monday night.

Kyle Kendrick was absolutely brilliant against the Marlins, allowing just one run and two hits through seven innings. Kendrick did walk three, but struck out eight in the win.

Wade LeBlanc struggled for Miami. The southpaw only lasted five frames and surrendered three runs on four hits and a walk.

Philadelphia provided the big blow in the fifth inning with a two-run homer by Domonic Brown. Third baseman Michael Martinez then scored the third and final run of the frame on a wild pitch.

The Marlins couldn't get any offense going throughout the affair, amassing just three hits including a lone extra-base knock off the bat of Carlos Lee, a double.

The only two singles for Ozzie Guillen's club came courtesy of Donovan Solano and Bryan Petersen. Solano brought in the only run for the Marlins on a sacrifice fly in the seventh, cutting the lead to 3-1.
