PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Cole Hamels had a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven dominant innings, Domonic Brown hit another homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep and even their record for the first time since they were 6-6.

Hamels (2-9) allowed one run and four hits to snap a personal six-game losing streak. The three-time All-Star lefty and 2008 World Series MVP hadn’t won since April 28 at the New York Mets.

Jimmy Rollins hit a go-ahead RBI single with two outs in the seventh off A.J. Ramos (0-2). Ryan Howard followed with a two-run triple, diving headfirst into third.

Then Brown went downtown to make it 6-1. Brown has 10 homers in the last 12 games and leads the NL with 18.

The Phillies (30-30) have their first four-game winning streak and will try to go above .500 for the first time when they open a four-game series at Milwaukee on Thursday night.

Hamels has been a hard-luck pitcher this season, and his record isn’t a true indicator of the way he’s pitched. The Phillies haven’t given him much run support and he didn’t pitch with a lead between his third and 11th start. Over those nine outings, he was 1-8 with a 3.24 ERA.

It was 1-1 when Hamels was lifted for pinch-hitter Delmon Young with one out in the seventh. Ben Revere followed with a single. One out later, Rollins gave Philadelphia the lead.

Plate umpire John Hirschbeck left the game in the bottom of the seventh after a pitch missed by catcher Miguel Olivo appeared to hit him in the right hand. Hirschbeck immediately slumped to the ground and walked off the field after a few minutes. He was replaced behind the plate by second base umpire Jim Reynolds.

Derek Dietrich hit a solo homer off Hamels in the fourth.

Marlins starter Jacob Turner allowed one run and four hits in six innings. He’s 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA in two starts.

The Phillies gave Hamels a rare 1-0 lead when Erik Kratz doubled in John Mayberry Jr. in the second.

Mayberry started in right field for Young a day after hitting a tying homer in the 10th inning and a grand slam to win it in the 11th. He was the first player to homer twice in extra innings since Baltimore’s Mike Young in 1987.
