An Ed Lucas single to right field against Justin de Fratus in the bottom of the eleventh gave the Marlins a walkoff 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a three game series on Tuesday night.

Jeff Baker opened the inning with a single, and Christian Yelich's sacrifice bunt allowed him to get into scoring position before Lucas drove him in.

Philadelphia got off to quick start against Henderson Alvarez. Jimmy Rollins doubled with one out and scored on a Chase Utley RBI single to give the Phillies an early 1-0 edge.

A Domonic Brown RBI single to center field in the fourth gave the Phillies a two run edge, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia's two RBI single in the bottom of the frame against A.J. Burnett tied the game a two.

Giancarlo Stanton added an RBI single to give the Marlins the lead in the bottom of the fifth, and Stanton came around to score on a wild pitch, making it a 4-2 contest.

Alvarez went seven innings,  yielding two runs while walking one and striking out three.

Marlon Byrd and Cody Asche both hit consecutive home runs with two outs against Kevin Gregg in the eighth to tie the game before he was relieved by Mike Dunn.

Steve Cishek pitched a scoreless ninth, and Bryan Morris added a pair of scoreless innings and got the win.
