After a solid outing from Nathan Eovaldi on Monday, rookie Andrew Heaney struggled in his second major league start as the Marlins fell to the Phillies 7-4 in the second game of the four game series on Tuesday.
Philadelphia got off to a quick start offensively against Andrew Heaney. A throwing error by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia allowed Jimmy Rollins to score in the first, and Marlon Byrd took Heaney deep to center field to give the Phillies an early three run lead.
An error by Chase Utley on an Ed Lucas popup allowed Saltalamacchia to score against Dave Buchanan in the top of the second got the Marlins on the board, but a Heaney wild pitch with Ben Revere on third base made it a 4-1 contest.
A Casey McGehee fifth inning sacrifice fly made it a two run game, and Buchanan's night ended after just five innings, during which he yielded two runs while walking four and striking out a pair.
Ryan Howard doubled to open the sixth against Heaney, which led to his immediate departure. In his second major league start, Heaney went five innings and gave up five runs while walking two and striking out five. Heaney struggled with command but was able to effectively bounce back after a rough first inning.
