While it wasn't the sharpest outing for starter A.J. Burnett or the Phillies bullpen, Jonathan Papelbon was able to record the final out with a runner on third, as the Phillies topped the Marlins, 6-5.
The Phillies' lead would disappear just as quickly, as the Marlins scored two runs of their own in the bottom of the frame before taking the lead in the third.
Burnett would continue to battle from there, lasting five innings, allowing three runs, on three hits and five walks.
A two-run home run by Jimmy Rollins in the fifth would give the Phillies and Burnett the lead again.
John Mayberry Jr. would single home two runs in the sixth to extend the Phillies lead, and those runs would prove to be crucial, as the Phillies were able to hold on for the 6-5 win in the end.
The Phillies will look to lock up a series win on Wednesday night, as Kyle Kendrick takes the mound.
Notes: Cliff Lee was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday after being diagnosed with a mild strain in the flexor tendon in his left elbow.
