Phillies win to heap more misery on Marlins

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Joe Blanton added to a miserable week for Miami by shutting down the Marlins in a 3-1 home victory on Thursday.

Blanton allowed just one run in seven innings as the Phillies (3-3) ended the three-game series with two straight wins.

Shane Victorino homered in the fourth inning when Philadelphia scored twice while Ty Wigginton hit a blast in the seventh to further rain on the Marlins' season-opening parade.

The Marlins had entered the season with a new ballpark and a revamped roster but have fallen to 2-5 and have lost two straight since manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended for five games for controversial comments about Cuba's Fidel Castro.
