Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 on Tuesday. Miami struggled with runners in scoring positionand Anthony DeSclafani lasted just over five innings in his second major league start.

After winning just four games on an 11 game road trip, the Marlins fell to the Phillies 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Jimmy Rollins led off the game with a single, and Ryan Howard and Marlon Byrd both drove in runs to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead over Anthony DeSclafani.

Facing former Marlin A.J. Burnett, the Marlins were able to tie the game in the bottom of the first. Casey McGehee drove in a run with a single to center field, and Marcell Ozuna walked with two outs to tie the game at two.

Miami took the lead in the bottom of the third on a Garrett Jones double to right field that scored Giancarlo Stanton, who walked to open the inning.

Despite scoring early, the Phillies added a pair of runs in both the fifth and sixth innings, punctuated by a John Mayberry pinch hit single to left field in the top of the sixth.

In five and a third innings, Anthony DeSclafani gave up five runs and walked one while striking out a pair.

Brad Hand gave up a run in two thirds off an inning, but Randy Wolf pitched two scoreless innings in relief and A.J. Ramos added a scoreless inning after DeSclafani's pitch count quickly rose.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in a run against Mike Adams in the eighth to make it a 6-4 contest, but like on several other occasions, couldn't put together a rally. Miami went 3-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Miami scored a run in the ninth against Jonathan Papelbon, but couldn't rally late.
