The Miami Marlins fell to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday by a score of 7-1 as Josh Johnson had one of the worst starts of his career.   The loss dropped the Marlins to 2-4 on the year and came in a game that was expected to be a pitchers duel with Roy Halladay starting for the Phillies.    Joey Cora managed the team in the first of five games that Ozzie Guillen will miss due to his suspension.

Johnson allowed six runs on eleven hits in three and two third innings to fall to 0-2.    It took 83 pitches for the Marlins’ ace to get those eleven outs and he was unable to make it out of the fourth inning.   Johnson who is known for his strikeout ability only tallied one K in the game and was not able to fool any of the Philadelphia batters.   Chad Gaudin saw his first action of the season going two and a third scoreless innings in which he struck out two.    Ryan Webb pitched the final two innings allowing a run on a solo homerun by Carlos Ruiz.

In the first inning, the Marlins managed to load the bases against Halladay but couldn’t put a run on the board.   After that, the Cy Young winner got on a roll and shut the Marlins down allowing only one run in seven innings of work.   The offense put together five hits with two of those coming courtesy of Giancarlo Stanton.  Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez each doubled to give them both a pair of two base hits on the year.

The Marlins will look to win the series on Thursday when they send Mark Buehrle to the mound.  Starting for the Phillies will be Joe Blanton.
