Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer as part of an eight-run fifth inning, and the last-place Miami Marlins defeated the visiting Philadelphia Phillies 10-5 in a National League East battle Sunday afternoon.
Anderson went 3-for-5 and has 109 hits, the most by a major league rookie before the All-Star break since two players did it in 2003.
In their last game before the All-Star break, the Marlins completed a week in which they took two out of three games from a pair of first-place teams, the Milwaukee Brewers and then the Phillies.
Marlins reliever Elieser Hernandez (2-5) earned the win, pitching one scoreless inning.
Overall, Miami's bullpen pitched five scoreless innings with Hernandez as well as Javy Guerra (1 2/3 innings), Adam Conley (1 1/3 innings) and Ben Meyer (one inning).
Miami had 15 hits and held Philadelphia to just four.
Phillies right-hander Zach Eflin, who had been scheduled to start, was a late scratch due to a blister on his right middle finger. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list.
In place of Efliin, the Phillies started rookie right-hander Enyel De Los Santos, 22, who had posted a 9-3 record with a 1.89 ERA at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Philadelphia, which had no hits through the first three innings, appeared to break the game open with a five-run fourth. Marlins starter Jose Urena threw 41 pitches in the inning.
The rally started with leadoff batter Odubel Herrera, who pulled a double down the right-field line. After a walk to Nick Williams, Herrera scored on a single to center by Maikel Franco.
Scott Kingery's run-scoring single gave the Phillies a 2-0 lead before Cesar Hernandez pulled a two-out, three-run triple to right.
Miami countered with its eight-run fifth inning, getting a solo home run by Cameron Maybin, Anderson's three-run shot and two-run singles from Miguel Rojas and Justin Bour. It was Miami's biggest inning of the season.
The Marlins added two runs in the ninth on a passed ball charged to Andrew Knapp and a J.T. Realmuto sacrifice fly.
