MIAMI -- Early offense and a quality start from Brad Hand lifted the Marlins to a 9-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in front of 19,689 at Marlins Park on Thursday night.

"The first two innings, that was great to see," Manager Dan Jennings said of the first two frames during which the Marlins scored a combined eight runs. "I thought Brad [Hand] did a great job, gave us six innings which in itself is huge. Just some tremendous at-bats up and down the lineup all game."

Other notes:

-- Adeiny Hechavarria extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a single in the first inning. He is batting .380 and has driven six runs over that span.

-- Brad Hand has not allowed a home run at Marlins Park since August 15 of last season.

-- Marcell Ozuna only hit four home runs in the first half but has hit a pair since being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on August 15.

-- Dee Gordon reached base safely three out of five times on Thursday night and recorded his 43rd multi-hit game of the season.
