Marcell Ozuna had an RBI double among his two hits and scored a
run as the Marlins posted just the third victory in their last 12
visits to Citizens Bank Park. Casey McGehee went 2-for-4 to extend
his road hitting streak to 16 games and also scored a run.
Domonic Brown slapped an RBI single and Chase Utley had a sacrifice
fly for the Phillies, who have lost four of five following a
season-high five-game winning streak. Marlon Byrd had three hits and
Jimmy Rollins added a pair in the setback.
Brown misplayed the line drive by Ozuna, allowing Giancarlo Stanton
to open the scoring with two outs in the fourth. Brown's miscue
extended the inning and Saltalamacchia made him pay by driving in a
pair with his shot to the left-center field gap off A.J. Burnett
Utley's bid for a grand slam fell one foot short in center field,
resulting in a long sacrifice fly in the fifth inning before Brown
added an RBI single in the sixth. Alvarez (5-3) yielded those two
runs - one earned - on seven hits and two relievers bridged the gap
to Steve Cishek, who struck out the side in the ninth for his 18th
[to top of second column]

three runs on five hits while striking out eight in seven innings.

15-day disabled list and recalled INF Donovan Solano from Triple-A
New Orleans. ... Phillies C Carlos Ruiz failed to get a hit in three
at-bats to drop to 0-for-15 in his last five games.
