PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Brian Anderson faced Trevor Rogers on his 28th birthday, who threw a five-hit ball for 7 2/3 innings and led the Miami Marlins 3-1 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.
Adam Duvall and Jazz Chisholm Jr. also ran for the Marlins, who won a second time in five games.

Rogers (6-2) gave up five hits, including Andrew McCutchen’s homer in the sixth inning. The 23-year-old rookie left-handed struck eight and went two. He has 104 eliminations from 16 major league starts.
Yimi Garcia ended the game with two goals for the eighth time in nine chances. Garcia stranded two when Andrew Knapp hit a flyout in the center right at the end of the game that was meters away from winning for the Phillies.
Zach Eflin (2-3) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings with six strikeouts and no walks. Philadelphia lost for a third time in four games.
Anderson hit a starting gun from the second inning and drove a sinker at 150 km / h.
Eflin knocked out 12 of his next 13 batters before Miguel Rojas doubled up before the sixth to meet Duvall’s one-off single.
After McCuthen’s seventh homer, a drive just inside the foul bar of left field, the Marlins opened seventh with three singles that weighed down Brandon Kintzler’s bases, including Rogers’ first major league hit.
Chisholm greeted Sam Coonrod with a swinging, colorful single that Garrett Cooper met. Phillies manager Joe Girardi argued that Cooper left the baseline when catcher Knapp tried to apply the label, but to no avail.

The Phillies started with 22 penalties, close to the major league average. In the first round, Bryce Harper broke back on Duvall’s rotten ball, which fell in front of the hard-charged right fielder for a single. The Marlins didn’t score a goal in the frame, but it forced Eflin to throw additional pitches.
Girardi said ahead of the game that Philadelphia’s defense needed to be improved.
“Giving extra outs is a recipe for disaster,” he said. “The most valuable asset in the game are outs. You don’t want to give anything away or give anything away to the other team. The defense shows up when the games are over. Often times, it makes your starter throw more innings and it adds up to a lot of different things. “

The teams end the three-game series on Thursday night, with Miami RHP Sandy Alcantara (1-3, 4.06) facing Phillies RHP Vince Velasquez (1-0, 3.68).
