MIAMI (AP) — Dee Gordon's RBI double with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Justin Bour hit his 19th home run for the Marlins, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

Miguel Rojas singled and Ichiro Suzuki walked with two outs in the 11th before Gordon doubled to deep right-center field off Jerome Williams (4-12).

Brian Ellington (2-1) earned the win by pitching a scoreless inning.

Both teams scored a run in the 10th as Freddy Galvis hit an RBI single for the Phillies and Suzuki scored for the Marlins on a throwing error by catcher Carlos Ruiz.

The Marlins had a runner in scoring position after Ruiz's error with no outs, but were unable to drive in the winning run in three straight at-bats.

Miami led 2-1 in the eighth before the Phillies tied it. Pinch-hitter Erik Kratz doubled off Mike Dunn as center fielder Christian Yelich was unable to come up with the ball hit to left-center field. Kratz moved to third on a groundout and scored on a wild pitch by Dunn to tie the game at 2.

Adam Conley struck out a career-high eight batters in six innings allowing one run for the Marlins. Conley left in the seventh inning with a 2-1 lead.

Phillies starter David Buchanan allowed two runs, one earned, and seven hits in five innings.

Bour led off the fourth with a home run down the right-field line for a 2-0 lead. It was his third home run in his last seven games.

The Phillies cut the deficit to 2-1 in the fifth inning when a run scored on a double play grounder by Ruiz.


Former major league manager Manny Acta confirmed he interviewed Tuesday for the Marlins' managerial job.

"I had a nice meeting with them," Acta said in an email to the AP, "but I need to respect the process and just be happy that I'm part of it."

He had no further comment.


Marlins: 3B Martin Prado (wrist) missed his fifth consecutive game, but the plan is for him to return before the end of the season. . SS Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is still not 100 percent, but could return to the lineup this week for the first time since Sept. 2.


Phillies: RHP Alex Asher (0-4, 9.78 ERA) will be looking for his first major league win in Thursday's series finale.

Marlins: RHP Jarred Cosart (2-4, 4.43) has been sharp in his last three starts since returning from the DL going 1-0 with a 1.72 ERA.
