Through the Marlins' abysmal 6-18 start to June, the one bright spot was Josh Johnson looking more and more like the ace he once was. It was due to lack of support that the Marlins lost three of his first four starts of the month. They backed him with only six runs in those games. They scored that many in the first five innings Friday, and it was more than enough for Johnson in a 6-2 victory over the Phillies in their first visit to Marlins Park. The Marlins hadn't had celebratory music in the clubhouse after consecutive games since June 2-3 in Philadelphia. "Awesome. It's a lot of fun, especially when you get to hear "Red Solo Cup" right after the game," Johnson said, referring to the Toby Keith hit. "It's not fun at all whenever you're losing games, especially the way we were losing them. This is huge for us at the end of the month."
Marlins' Johnson has plenty of support in stifling Phillies
