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.
