PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez hit two homers and drove in three runs to help the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Saturday.
Ricky Nolasco (6-3) allowed four runs on eight hits in seven-plus innings to improve to 6-1 in seven career starts at Philadelphia for the Marlins. Miami has won four of its last five and denied Cole Hamels (8-2) his ninth victory.
Jose Reyes had an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.
Hunter Pence homered for the second straight game for the Phillies, who lost for just the third time in 10 games.
Ramirez homered in his second straight at-bat in the sixth, a two-run shot to left, to give Miami a 4-3 lead. After Omar Infante led off the inning with an infield single, Ramirez drove Hamels' 2-2 changeup into the seats in left for his 12th career multihomer game.
Reyes increased the lead to two runs with a two-out RBI double to left that put Miami up 5-3 and spell the end for Hamels.

BEST OF MAXIM
The Miami Marlins beat one of the majors' top pitchers to even their series in Philadelphia. They might win the set if they can somehow add to the struggles of the Phillies' next scheduled starter.
Trying for their first winning series at Citizens Bank Park in two years, the Marlins hope for some rare success against Joe Blanton on Sunday.

We find ourselves at the end of another mediocre week from the Phillies. The Phillies took two of three from the Mets before giving up two of three to the Marlins. Lucky for us, mediocre baseball seems the slogan of the National League East so the Phillies are still not that far off.————————–The Good, the bad, the ugly (Wild Thing)Chase Utley is on the move...
Jose Contreras is going to the DL and it is retroactive to his appearance in the 7th inning of tonight's game. He is scheduled for an MRI this weekend.
Conteras could not even record an out before falling to the ground in pain and agony after throwing a pitch. At first the Phillies reported that he had left the game with elbow soreness, but if you saw it on TV you could tell...
Phillies reliever Jose Contreras has torn a ligament and a tendon in his right elbow and will likely miss the rest of the season.
Contreras was injured Friday. An MRI scan Saturday showed he tore his ulnar collateral ligament and flexor pronator tendon.
The 40-year-old Contreras had right elbow surgery last year. He reinjured the elbow in the seventh inning Friday night while facing...
Roy Halladay came to the Philadelphia Philles for 2 of the 3 prized youngsters in the vault. That was in 2010, when they were making noise in the high minors. If they were ready for the 2011 campaign, where are they?

The Chrystal Champagne Toast is a salute to Jonathan Papelbon.
Other than three grounds-crew members, Roy Halladay was the lone soul on the field early Sunday morning at Citizens Bank Park. He ran sprints on the warning track, which probably offered little solace for the weeks of rest ahead. If Halladay’s bad shoulder forces an absence of eight weeks, as suggested, it could make him a free agent one season sooner than expected.
Ryan Howard acknowledges this: He won't be stealing bases the way he used to.
In other words, the Philadelphia Phillies' burly slugger thinks he's the same player he was before tearing his left Achilles' tendon.
Howard will begin a rehab stint Thursday night, a day after Chase Utley returned to the Phillies' lineup. The 2006 NL MVP hasn't played since getting...
In this infogragh via Mashable yesterday, It looks like the Cardinals have a respectable number of people Instagram'ing.Still, considering that the Marlins draw about 1/3 of the Cardinals during home games... this should be higher. Come on STL - get those smart phones out instead of doing 'The Wave'.
The Phillies offense was at its worst on Sunday against Carlos Zambrano and the Miami Marlins. They played their 55th straight game without both Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. Manager Charlie Manuel slotted journeyman Hector Luna into the cleanup spot of his batting order. The team's lone extra base hit was a bunt double by Juan Pierre. It wasn't a surprise, then, that...

The rumors of the death of the Philadelphia Phillies are premature. Even with their multitude of injuries and sub-standard play, the returning division champions are still very much alive in the NL East.
