PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Ed Lucas homered in the 10th inning to lift the Miami Marlins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. The Phillies loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the inning but could not score after Roger Bernadina struck out and Freddy Galvis grounded out to end it. The homer was the fourth of the season for Lucas. Miami's Giancarlo Stanton tied the game 3-3 in the sixth inning with a two-run, homer to center field that was measured at 460 feet. Brad Hand (1-1) was credited with the victory for pitching a scoreless ninth. Steve Cisek was shaky in the 10th but picked up his 31st save overall and 26th in a row, the longest active streak in the major leagues and one shy of the Marlins' franchise record set by Todd Jones in 2005. Cesar Jimenez (1-1) took the loss as Miami snapped its seven-game losing streak to Philadelphia. A couple of Phillies miscues in the fifth inning set up the Marlins' first run. Following Adeiny Hechavarria's single, Nathan Eovaldi reached first base on an error when catcher Carlos Ruiz fielded his sacrifice bunt attempt and threw too high to second. Luis Garcia's wild pitch moved the runners to second and third with one out, and Hechavarria scored on Donovan Solano's groundout. The Phillies loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning on two walks and a single and tied it on a passed ball. Chase Utley drove in two runs with a single to right. The Phillies squandered an opportunity to take the lead in the eighth. Domonic Brown led off with a double and moved to third on a groundout. After Cody Asche struck out, Bernadina hit a liner toward shortstop but Hechavarria made a diving stop to preserve the tie. Utley finished the series against the Marlins with six hits and 10 RBIs. Eovaldi struggled with his control through five innings, allowing three runs, four hits, four walks and a hit batter while striking out five. In his first major league start since August 2009, Zach Miner tossed three scoreless innings for the Phillies and allowed two hits, walked two and struck out two. NOTES: The Phillies are 11-5 against the Marlins this season. The clubs have one series left, a three-game set next week in Miami. ... An MRI on RHP Kyle Kendrick, Philadelphia's original Wednesday night starter, revealed nothing more than shoulder tendinitis. He will get a second opinion Thursday but could pitch again as soon as next Tuesday. ... After a day off Thursday, Philadelphia will host the Mets for three games starting Friday with Cole Hamels (8-13, 3.48) on the hill. ... Miami begins its final road series in Washington on Thursday, when Henderson Alvarez (4-4, 3.97) will start.
