Instant Replay: Marlins 5, Phillies 0

BOX SCORE

MIAMI – Cole Hamels’ string of strong starts was snapped at 10 as the Miami Marlins beat the Phillies, 5-0, on Wednesday night.

The loss marked the low point of the season as the Phillies, losers of six straight and 10 of their last 12, fell to 12 games under .500.

The Phillies, who had just five singles in the game, have been shut out 11 times on the season. Only San Diego has been shut out more.

Hamels lasted just five innings (97 pitches) and allowed three runs. He had pitched at least seven innings in 10 straight starts.

Starting pitching report
Hamels (2-5) seemed off right from the get-go. He allowed a base hit and two walks in the first inning. Though he escaped a bases-loaded jam, he threw 34 pitches in the first inning. In all, the left-hander went five innings, allowed five hits and three runs. He walked four, hit a batter and struck out three. Hamels gave up a leadoff walk in the fifth inning then allowed a pair of RBI doubles.

Miami’s Tom Koehler (6-6) held the Phillies to three hits over six shutout innings. He walked one and struck out seven.

Bullpen report
Kenny Giles pitched a scoreless inning and struck out one. He has pitched nine innings since coming up from Triple A and has allowed just one run, which came in his first inning of work.

Mario Hollands’ scoreless innings streak was snapped at 18 when he allowed a two-run homer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the eighth. The home run came one batter after Hollands took a ball off the right knee from the bat of Marcell Ozuna. Hollands faced two more batters then left the game with what was called a contusion.

Miami’s bullpen pitched three scoreless innings.

At the plate
The Phillies’ offense let Koehler off the hook in the first inning. Ben Revere and Jimmy Rollins opened the game with base hits to put runners on first and third with no outs. The Phils got nothing out of the threat as Koehler struck out Chase Utley and Marlon Byrd before retiring Ryan Howard on a ground ball to second.

The Phillies did not get their third hit of the game until the sixth inning. They were 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position.

The Marlins had four extra-base hits. The Phillies had none.

Health check
Cliff Lee, on the disabled list since May 20 with a strained left elbow, will make a minor-league rehab start for Single A Clearwater on Sunday. Lee threw a 60-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. He could throw up to 75 pitches Sunday (see story).

Transactions
The Phillies placed outfielder Domonic Brown on paternity leave and recalled outfielder Aaron Altherr from Double A (see story). Brown is expected to be back in a couple of days.

The Phils also shifted reliever Mike Adams (shoulder) to the 60-day disabled list. Adams won’t be eligible to return until early August.

Pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez came off the disabled list and was assigned to Double A, where he will work as a reliever.

Up next
Kyle Kendrick (3-8, 4.22) will oppose Miami lefty Brad Hand (0-1, 6.38) in the series finale Thursday night.

Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Ivan Rodriguez elected to baseball's Hall of Fame

Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Ivan Rodriguez elected to baseball's Hall of Fame

NEW YORK -- Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez were elected to baseball's Hall of Fame on Wednesday, earning the honor as Trevor Hoffman and Vladimir Guerrero fell just short.

Steroids-tainted stars Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were passed over for the fifth straight year by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. But they received a majority of votes for the first time and could be in position to gain election in coming years.

Bagwell , on the ballot for the seventh time after falling 15 votes short last year, received 381 of 442 votes for 86.2 percent. Players needed 75 percent, which came to 332 votes this year.

"Anxiety was very, very high," Bagwell said. "I wrote it on a ball tonight. It was kind of cool."

In his 10th and final year of eligibility, Raines was on 380 ballots (86 percent). Rodriguez received 336 votes (76 percent) to join Johnny Bench in 1989 as the only catchers elected on the first ballot.

Hoffman was five votes shy and Guerrero 15 short.

Edgar Martinez was next at 58.6 percent, followed by Clemens at 54.1 percent, Bonds at 53.8 percent, Mike Mussina at 51.8 percent, Curt Schilling at 45 percent, Lee Smith at 34.2 percent and Manny Ramirez at 23.8 percent.

Players will be inducted July 30 during ceremonies at Cooperstown along with former Commissioner Bud Selig and retired Kansas City and Atlanta executive John Schuerholz, both elected last month by a veterans committee.

Bagwell was a four-time All-Star who spent his entire career with Houston, finishing with a .297 batting average, 401 homers and 1,401 RBIs.

Raines, fifth in career stolen bases, was a seven-time All-Star and the 1986 NL batting champion. He spent 13 of 23 big league seasons with the Montreal Expos, who left Canada to become the Washington Nationals for the 2005 season, and joins Andre Dawson and Gary Carter as the only players to enter the Hall representing the Expos.

Raines hit .294 with a .385 on-base percentage, playing during a time when Rickey Henderson was the sport's dominant speedster.

Rodriguez, a 14-time All-Star who hit .296 with 311 homers and 1,332 RBIs, was never disciplined for PEDs but former Texas teammate Jose Canseco alleged in a 2005 book that he injected the catcher with steroids. Asked whether he was on the list of players who allegedly tested positive for steroids during baseball's 2003 survey, Rodriguez said in 2009: "Only God knows."

Bonds, a seven-time MVP who holds the season and career home run records, received 36.2 percent in his initial appearance, in 2013, and jumped from 44.3 percent last year. Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner, rose from 45.2 percent last year.

Bonds was indicted on charges he lied to a grand jury in 2003 when he denied using PEDs, but a jury failed to reach a verdict on three counts he made false statements and convicted him on one obstruction of justice count, finding he gave an evasive answer. The conviction was overturned appeal in 2015.

Clemens was acquitted on one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements to Congress and two counts of perjury, all stemming from his denials of drug use.

A 12-time All-Star on the ballot for the first time, Ramirez was twice suspended for violating baseball's drug agreement. He helped the Boston Red Sox win World Series titles in 2004 and `07, the first for the franchise since 1918, and hit .312 with 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs in 19 big league seasons.

Several notable players will join them in the competition for votes in upcoming years: Chipper Jones and Jim Thome in 2018, Mariano Rivera and Roy Halladay in 2019, and Derek Jeter in 2020.

Lee Smith, who had 478 saves, got 34 percent in his final time on the ballot. Jorge Posada, Tim Wakefield and Magglio Ordonez were among the players who got under 5 percent and fell off future ballots.
