MLB Scores: Miami Marlins 5, Philadelphia Phillies 0

Marc Serota

The Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 on Wednesday night. Tom Koehler pitched well and the bullpen held a late lead.

Both the Phillies and the Marlins struggled heading into the mid-week three game series, but through the first two games, the Marlins have been able to consistently capitalize on Philadelphia miscues.

After winning the first game of the three game series, the Miami Marlins defeated the Phillies 5-0 in game two on Wednesday night.

Following several early scoring opportunities, the Marlins got on the board first against Cole Hamels in the bottom of the fourth. With the bases loaded, Donovan Solano hit an RBI single to right field to give the Marlins a 1-0 advantage.

Hamels got Tom Koehler to ground into a double play to end the inning, but RBI doubles by Ed Lucas and Casey McGehee in the fifth pushed the Marlins' lead to three.

Tom Koehler stranded runners on second and third in the first inning, and after that settled in. In six innings, Koehler walked one and struck out seven while yielding just three hits.

Hamels couldn't continue his success against the Marlins, as he lasted just five innings and gave up three runs while walking four and striking out three.

Marcell Ozuna opened the bottom of the eighth against Philly reliever Mario Hollands, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia followed with a two-run home run to make it a 5-0 contest.

Mike Dunn and Kevin Gregg each pitched an inning of scoreless relief before Chris Hatcher ended the game with an uneventful top of the ninth.
