Most of the Phillies' scoring today came right in the top of the first inning.  After Jimmy Rollins walked and Juan Pierre singled to center field, Chase Utley hit a sacrifice fly- RBI for the first run of the game.  Carlos Ruiz followed with a RBI-double, which scored Juan Pierre.  A couple of batters later, Nate Schierholtz singled to left field, scoring Ruiz, giving the Phillies the early 3-0 lead.

Up 3-1 in the top of the 8th,  Domonic Brown provided an extra insurance run coming via a sacrifice fly RBI to center field.  Brown now has 26 RBIs this season in 175 at-bats.

Cole Hamels lasted seven innings today, allowing jusy one run on five hits and one walk.  He struck out eight Miami batters, and threw well enough for his career single-season high of 17 wins.  68 of his 99 total pitches were thrown for strikes.

Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 38th save of the season in the bottom of the ninth inning. The previous time he saved 38 games or more was back in 2009 with the Boston Red Sox. His career single-season high was set back in 2008, when he saved 41 games.
