MIAMI (AP) -- Delmon Young homered and Ryan Howard added three hits and three RBIs to help carry the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Tyler Cloyd (1-0) allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings. He was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley (International League) earlier in the day. Miami's Jose Fernandez went five innings, allowing one run and five hits. He walked one and struck out two. Philadelphia went ahead 2-1 in the sixth when Domonic Brown's ground out scored Howard from third. Howard led off with a single and took third on Young's double to deep center off Duane Below (0-1). Howard's single with the bases loaded scored two runs and highlighted a four-run seventh that gave the Phillies a 6-1 lead. Howard returned to the lineup after missing two games with a sore left knee. He received a cortisone shot Sunday. Young's ground out and Brown's double scored the other Phillies runs in the seventh. Young homered to left-center on a 2-2 pitch with one out in the fourth. It was his second home run of the season. Juan Pierre's seventh-inning RBI single pulled Miami within 6-2. Howard added an RBI single in the eighth off Wade LeBlanc. Miami's Justin Ruggiano had a run-scoring double with two outs in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Jordan Brown's sacrifice fly in the fifth scored Placido Polanco to tie it at 1 and take Fernandez off the hook. NOTES: The crowd of 13,996 was the third-smallest at Marlins Park this season. ... The Phillies placed C Carlos Ruiz (strained hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list before the game. Marlins RHP Kevin Slowey (1-4, 3.44) opposes LHP Cliff Lee (4-2, 2.83) in the series finale on Wednesday night. ... Marlins manager Mike Redmond said injured RHP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) was scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday before 60-65 pitches in a start with Class A Jupiter (Florida State League) on Saturday.
