MIAMI -- Seven innings and two runs allowed, Mark Buehrle will take that every time. And so will the Miami Marlins. Buehrle (7-8) also allowed seven hits and struck out seven in a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies to win their third straight. "The couple hits they got were change-ups up in the zone, but overall I'll take every start going seven innings and giving up two runs," Buehrle said. Giancarlo Stanton homered and drove in two runs for the Marlins, who have won three straight for the first time since May 28-30 when they swept Washington. "I hope this is not a tease," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I hope this is for real." Mike Bunn pitched the eighth and Heath Bell recorded his 16th save in 20 opportunities by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth. Hamels (10-4) pitched seven innings and allowed three runs as he lost to Miami for the third time this season. Hamels has a 5.21 ERA in the three starts. "They've been a tough...

Who Misses Jose Reyes?

Jose Reyes batted .354 in first half of 2011, and is batting .269 in 2012. It’s funny how some things work in this game. About a year ago this week we were staging a “Don’t Trade Reyes Rally” at Citi Field and everyday we were consumed with countless posts about keeping Reyes at all costs and how the team would be doomed if we lost him. I oughta know because I wrote a handful of...
