Morgan Snaps MLB Worst Losing Skid, Phillies Top Marlins 4-3

MIAMI (AP) — Adam Morgan snapped his major league-worst streak of nine consecutive losses, Odubel Herrera scored three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies spoiled Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton’s return by beating the reeling Marlins 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Morgan (2-9) allowed five hits and one run in six innings. He hadn’t won since May 10, going 0-9 with a 6.72 ERA in his last 15 appearances, 13 of those starts.

Tommy Joseph and Freddy Galvis each drove in two runs for the Phillies.

Ichiro Suzuki hit the first pinch-hit home run of his career, a two-run shot in the eighth for Miami. Stanton was activated from the disabled list about an hour before the game and delivered a pinch-hit single in the fifth for Miami, which lost for the 10th time in 11 games.

Jose Urena (3-6) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings for Miami, which is 11-23 since Aug. 1.
