BOX SCORE

MIAMI -- The Phillies suffered their ninth loss in the last 11 games Tuesday night.

Ed Lucas served an RBI single into right field with one out in the 11th inning to lift the Miami Marlins to a 5-4 win over the flopping Phillies, who are now a season-worst 9½ games behind in the NL East.

Justin De Fratus took the loss and had an 18-inning scoreless streak snapped. He was in his second inning of work when he allowed a leadoff single to Jeff Baker. Lucas’ hit came after a sacrifice bunt.

The Phillies, who tied the game with a pair of homers in the eighth, have matched a season-worst by falling 11 games under .500.

Starting pitching report
A.J. Burnett had the 34th double-digit strikeout game of his career, but could not protect an early 2-0 lead. Burnett gave up six hits, walked four and threw a wild pitch. His ERA is 3.92.

Miami right-hander Henderson Alvarez allowed two runs over seven innings. He walked just one and struck out three. In four starts against the Phillies this season, Alvarez has allowed just six earned runs in 26 2/3 innings.

Bullpen report
Ken Giles and Jake Diekman both pitched a scoreless inning. Antonio Bastardo survived a sloppy ninth -- two walks, one intentional, and two wild pitches. He struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia with runners on second and third to end the inning and send the game to extras.

Miami’s Kevin Gregg allowed a pair of two-out homers in the eighth as the Phillies rallied to tie the game.

Bryan Morris was the winning pitcher.

At the plate
Chase Utley and Domonic Brown drove in runs in the first and fourth innings. The Phils tied the game on back-to-back solo home runs by Marlon Byrd and Cody Asche in the eighth.

Saltalamacchia had a two-run single in the fourth inning for Miami. Giancarlo Stanton singled in a run in the fifth and the Marlins’ other run in that inning came home on a wild pitch by Burnett.
