Justin De Fratus came on for the seventh and held the Marlins scoreless, allowing only one hit. B.J. Rosenberg came on to start the seventh and was hit around a bit after looking solid as of late. Rosenberg allowed two runs while recording two outs in the inning before Jake Diekman came on to finish out the frame. Jonathan Papelbon came on in the ninth and allowed one run on three hits, but still collected his 28th save of the season, as the Phillies yet again avoided loss number 81 on the season.
The Phillies grabbed the lead in the third when they laced four straight singles with one out. Following singles by Cesar Hernandez and Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley added a single of his own to plate the first run of the game. Carlos Ruiz followed that up with yet another single, as Rollins and Utley both crossed home plate.
The Marlins would score one in the fifth, but the Phillies would take it back and then some, as they scored three in the bottom of the frame. Chase Utley hit a home run for the second night in a row, as he cracked his eighteenth of the season, a three-run shot to right.
The Phillies bullpen would hold on to the lead afforded them and the Phillies would win their second in a row.
The Phillies will close out their series against the Marlins tonight as Zach Miner takes the hill.
