Phillies show rare power to beat Marlins
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Ryan Howard hit a go-ahead two-run homer, Freddy Galvis also connected to back Jerome Williams, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 7-3 Tuesday night.
Williams (1-1) allowed three runs -- two earned -- and eight hits, striking out six in six innings.
The slumping Marlins lost their fifth straight game, falling to 3-11. Manager Mike Redmond didn't get an endorsement from owner Jeffrey Loria after meeting with him and general manager Dan Jennings before the game.
Miami starter Dan Haren (1-1) gave up four runs and four hits in six innings. Giancarlo Stanton hit a 453-foot homer for the Marlins.
Coming off a 1-6 road trip, the Phillies showed some rare pop at the plate. They've hit just eight homers in 14 games.
