Phillies Sweep Marlins to Reach .500 Mark

Cole Hamels had a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven dominant innings, Domonic Brown hit another homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep and even their record for the first time since they were 6-6.

Hamels (2-9) allowed one run and four hits to snap a personal six-game losing streak. The three-time All-Star lefty and 2008 World Series MVP hadn’t won since April 28 at the New York Mets.

Jimmy Rollins hit a go-ahead RBI single with two outs in the seventh off A.J. Ramos (0-2). Ryan Howard followed with a two-run triple, diving headfirst into third.

Then Brown went downtown to make it 6-1. Brown has 10 homers in the last 12 games and leads the NL with 18.
