The Philadelphia Phillies came away 7-2 winners on Thursday as the Miami Marlins fell to a MLB worst 8-21.  The game was close until the Phillies added three runs in the eighth inning to secure the win.  It was the second loss in a row for Miami following their first winning streak of the season.     The loss was also the third in four tries vs the Phillies. Alex Sanabia tossed a decent game but not enough to avoid his fourth loss of the season.   The Phillies scored four times with two coming as earned runs to beat Sanabia and lower his record to 2-4.   Jon Rauch worked a scoreless sixth before Tom Koehler pitched the final two innings.  Koehler allowed three runs in two innings and did not record a strikeout in what was a rare poor appearance for the right-hander. Marcell Ozuna picked up his first double as a big leaguer while Adeiny Hechavarria tripled and Justin Ruggiano homered in the game.   Those were the three extra base hits for Miami out of a total of eight hits for the team.    Ruggiano’s blast was his fourth of the year and it also gave him twelve runs batted in on the season. Miami will look to snap the losing streak on Friday with Ricky Nolasco scheduled to make the start.
