It was the first time Hamels tossed two shutouts in a row. The previous Phillies pitcher to accomplish the feat was Cliff Lee, who had three straight in June 2011.

Hamels (13-6) entered 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in three outings against the Marlins this season. But in his three August starts, he is 2-1 with a 0.72 ERA. He has struck out 20 and walked two.

Juan Pierre had three hits and Jimmy Rollins scored twice for the Phillies, who snapped a five-game losing streak against Miami.

Nathan Eovaldi (3-8) allowed three runs -- two earned -- and eight hits in five innings for the Marlins, who have lost four of five.

Chase Utley's RBI double and an error by third baseman Greg Dobbs gave the Phillies a 2-0 lead in the third inning. They extended it to 3-0 on a triple by Pierre down the right-field line that scored Rollins.

Erik Kratz pushed another run across with a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

Hamels, who retired 11 in a row during one stretch, allowed two hits in the first, third and seventh but pitched out of trouble each time.

NOTES: Austin Kearns had nine putouts in left field for the Marlins. ... Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton saved a run and robbed Kratz of an extra-base hit in the second with a diving catch on the warning track in right-center. ... Marlins INF Nick Green was held out with a sore left thumb. ... Miami RHP Josh Johnson (7-8, 3.88 ERA) will face RHP Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86) on Tuesday. Kendrick is 8-2 against the Marlins.
