The Miami Marlins fell to 1-9 on Friday after a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in ten innings.   Once again, a starter put in a good effort only to come away without a win.  It was Ricky Nolasco’s turn this time around and he gave Miami a chance to win.   The offense however was quiet only putting together four hits in the ten frames. Nolasco now has a 3.12 E.R.A on the year after allowing one run on seven hits in his six innings of work.  The Marlins’ ace remains 0-1 on the year after his second straight no-decision.    A.J. Ramos, Mike Dunn, Steve Cishek and Jon Rauch all followed with an inning of work each.   The loss was charged to Rauch who allowed two runs in the tenth inning.    It was the first loss of the season for the Marlins’ new reliever.   Cishek rebounded from a blown save on Sunday with a perfect inning of relief. Placido Polanco remained the best part of Miami’s lineup with another two hit day to lift his average to .351 on the year.   Juan Pierre and Ricky Nolasco added the other two hits with all four going for singles.   Miami was actually decent with runners in scoring position going 1-2 but the limited opportunities led to the eventual defeat. Jose Fernandez is scheduled to make his home debut on Saturday against the Phillies.
