Recap: Miami vs. Philadelphia

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Kendrick tossed seven innings and had an RBI double among his three hits, as the Philadelphia Phillies edged the Miami Marlins 2-1 Wednesday night.

Kendrick (10-13) allowed a run on six hits and walked one.

"Kyle was good on both sides of the ball," said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg.

Ken Giles pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, and Jonathan Papelbon stranded a runner at second base in the ninth to earn his 38th save.

It was the first appearance for the Philadelphia closer since he received a seven-game suspension for grabbing his crotch in the direction of the fans at Citizens Bank Park after blowing a save against the Marlins on Sept. 14.

Brad Hand worked the first seven innings for the Marlins, holding the Phillies to a run on six hits with three walks.

"I thought Brad Hand did a good job. He handled (Chase) Utley and (Ryan) Howard, and had a tough time getting the pitcher out," joked Marlins manager Mike Redmond.

Chris Hatcher (0-3) relieved Hand and surrendered the go-ahead run in the eighth. Maikel Franco led off with a single and Marlon Byrd drove Franco in with a base hit to right field after Ryan Howard drew a one-out walk.

The Phillies threatened earlier in the game, but Byrd was tagged out at the plate in the second on a Darin Ruf double. In the fourth, Byrd was involved in another wasted opportunity as he lined into a double play at third with two runners in scoring position.

Franco was called out on strikes with the bases loaded to end the fifth.

Kendrick broke the scoreless tie in the seventh, plating Ruf with a two-out double to left-center field.

The Marlins responded in the home half of the seventh, producing a run on doubles by Garrett Jones and Enrique Hernandez. Kendrick then walked Jeff Mathis, but got pinch-hitter Reed Johnson to ground into an inning-ending double play.

Game Notes

The Phillies clinched their fifth straight winning season against the Marlins, 10-8 ... Kendrick improved to 13-3 in 21 career starts against the Marlins ... Hand issued no walks in his three previous starts.
