PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Roy Halladay threw seven sharp innings and the Philadelphia Phillies broke out of their offensive slump, beating the Marlins 7-1 on Wednesday night in Miami's first game without suspended manager Ozzie Guillen.
A once-potent offense that's missing Chase Utley and Ryan Howard struggled in the first four games, scoring eight runs total. But they rocked Marlins ace Josh Johnson, chasing the big right-hander in the fourth.
Carlos Ruiz hit a solo homer and a double. Jimmy Rollins, Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino -- the Phillies' 3-4-5 hitters -- were 7 for 13 with three RBIs and four runs.
Before the game, the focus was on Guillen. He was suspended five games by the Marlins on Tuesday for saying he admired Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The only winner–so far–for the Philadelphia Phillies in a fistful of aces is Roy Halladay. Can Cholley Manuel discover a productive lineup to back his starters? Can he push the right buttons to squeak out a few victories?

It was so nice of the Phillies offense to stop by Citizens Bank Park for a visit on Wednesday night. I do hope they stay awhile.
After scoring only 8 runs in their first 4 games of the season combined, it was very encouraging to see the Phils pick up 7 more last night. And there is never a better time to start swinging the bats than when Roy Halladay is on the mound.
Through 7 innings...

It was aces galore around Major League baseball on Wednesday. If you had Wednesday's starting pitchers as a poker hand in a high stakes game against the Devil, you'd say confidently, “I bet my soul on this hand.” Unfortunately, he'd pull a royal flush out of his goat ass and you'd burn for eternity. What a rube you are, trusting the Devil. Matter of fact, I...
