Jonathan Pettibone is giving the Philadelphia Phillies what they expected from their aces. Pettibone pitched neatly into the seventh, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Domonic Brown hit solo homers and the Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 4-1 Friday night.

The Florida Marlins completed a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 5-2 victory Thursday afternoon.
