Marlins Drop Two In Phillies Doubleheader

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Howard hit an RBI double in the 10th inning soon after Cliff Lee fell one strike short of his seventh shutout, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Florida Marlins 2-1 Thursday to sweep the day-night doubleheader.

The Phillies, who won the opener 3-1, reduced their magic number for clinching a fifth straight NL East title to two.

Jose Lopez spoiled Lee’s shutout bid when he hit a tying home run on an 0-2 pitch in the ninth.

Lee struck out 12 and allowed five hits in nine innings, failing to earn his 17th win.
