The Phillies began the night ranked 26th in the majors in homers, but they’ve hit seven in the past three games — all wins — while scoring 26 runs.

A.J. Burnett (3-3), who pitched for the Marlins from 1999-2005, won his first start at Marlins Park despite struggling with his command. He walked four and needed 96 pitches to get through five innings.

The Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon gave up an RBI single by Garrett Jones in the ninth before notching his 12th save.

Anthony DeSclafani (1-1) allowed five runs in 5 1-3 innings for Miami.
