With four hits in the first inning, everything started out so well for the Marlins hitters. It didn't last long.

The Marlins (67-91) failed to hold on to a three-run, first-inning lead as Miami's bats went silent, and the Phillies (79-79) lit up starter Ricky Nolasco and the Marlins bullpen for 15 hits in the visitors' 9-5 comeback victory at Marlins Park.

"They just kept grinding out at-bats," Nolasco (12-13) said after throwing 100 pitches in five innings. "After the second [inning], it felt like I had already thrown six."

With four games remaining in the season, Miami will now officially finish with a worse record than it had at the end of last year's 72-90 season.

Stanton was once again the star for Miami's offense, going 3 for 4, including a two-run single and a solo home run, his 36th of the season. The rest of the lineup was silent though, registering just two hits in the next seven innings.
