Jonathan Pettibone pitched neatly into the seventh, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Domonic Brown hit solo homers and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 4-1 Friday night.
Pettibone (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings in his third start filling in for injured lefty John Lannan.
Ricky Nolasco (2-3) gave up four runs and eight hits in six innings.
The Phillies are 9-2 combined against the Marlins (8-22) and New York Mets (11-15), but 5-14 against other teams. They’re 9-3 when Pettibone, Lannan or Kyle Kendrick start and 5-13 when aces Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee take the mound.
