Phils Dominate Marlins, Cruise to 14-2 Win in Florida
July 5, 2011, 6:50 pm

Cole Hamels and the Phillies cruised to a 14-2 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday night. That was good for the most runs they've put up in any game this season. Cole Hamels catching a liner in his banged up glove hand and Dom Brown making a dangerous dive were the only real stressful moments, and those lasted a few seconds.

Otherwise, the Phillies bats bombed Chris Volstad and his subsequent replacements. Not a whole lot of analysis needed in this one. Just look at the numbers:

Jimmy Rollins: 4 hits, 3 runs scored

Michael Martinez: 3 RBIs, 2 runs scored

Chase Utley: Only one lousy hit, what a bum

Ryan Howard: 4 hits, 4 RBIs, 3 runs scored

Raul Ibanez: 4 hits, 4 RBIs, 2 runs scored

Carlos Ruiz: 1 hit, 1 run

Dom Brown: 2 hits, a RBI, and a run scored

Wilson Valdez: 1 hit, 2 RBIs

Cole Hamels failed to notch a hit at the plate, but he limited the Marlins to only 2 runs scored on 8 hits and pitched pretty comfortably through 8 strong innings.

What was that you were saying a couple of weeks ago about the Phillies offense being so putrid?

Kyle Kendrick goes for the sweep tomorrow.
