MIAMI -- Mark Buehrle pitched seven innings, Greg Dobbs’ three hits included a home run and the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

Austin Kearns, Bryan Petersen and Dobbs each drove in two runs for the Marlins as they scored for the first time in four games.

Mark Buehrle (10-11) posted his 10th victory, giving him 12 consecutive seasons with double-digit wins. He allowed two runs and five hits with three strikeouts.

Roy Halladay (6-7) allowed three runs and struck out seven in seven innings. He came into the game with a 2-0 record and 0.60 ERA in his last two starts.

Ty Wiggington homered and drove in two runs for the Phillies.

Dobbs broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the sixth with his fourth home run of the season. Dobbs has recently been battling through a sore oblique but was forced into action at third base when Nick Green went down with an injury.

Miami blew the game open in the eighth with six runs off the Philadelphia bullpen. Giancarlo Stanton started the inning with an RBI single and Kearns followed with a two-run pinch-single. Petersen hit a two-run double and Gorkys Hernandez added an RBI single to stretch the lead to 9-2.

Buehrle, who came into the game struggling in his previous three starts with an 0-2 record and a 7.71 ERA, retired the first nine batters he faced before Jimmy Rollins led off the fourth with a single.

Dobbs’ RBI single that drove in Carlos Lee in the bottom of the fourth and gave the Marlins a 1-0 lead that snapped their franchise-record scoreless inning streak at 30 innings.

Miami lost 5-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday before being shut out twice by the Phillies to begin the three-game series. The three consecutive shutouts were also a club record.

After Dobbs’ hit, Donovan Solano’s sacrifice fly gave the Marlins a 2-0 lead.

Wiggington led off the fifth with his 10th home run to cut the deficit to 2-1. It was his first home run since July 4 against the New York Mets.

Wiggington tied the score at 2 with a two-out RBI single in the sixth. The inning stayed alive when Buehrle was unable to field a bunt by Kevin Frandsen cleanly.

NOTES: It was the 12th time two starting pitchers with perfect games faced each other and the first time since April 11, 2011, when Buehrle faced Oakland’s Dallas Braden. … The Los Angeles Dodgers have had the longest scoreless inning streak in the majors this season when they went 33 innings without a run in June. … Marlins CF Justin Ruggiano left the game in the fourth inning with a right oblique intercostal strain and is considered day to day. … Buehrle is tied with New York Yankees lefty C.C. Sabathia for the longest active streak of 10-win seasons. … The crowd of 22,450 was the smallest at Marlins Park since a June 22 game against Toronto drew 22,387.
