MIAMI (AP) Jeremy Hellickson dominated the Marlins for a second straight start, throwing six innings of one-hit ball to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat Miami 4-0 on Monday night.
Tommy Joseph hit a two-out RBI double in the top of the eighth to break a scoreless tie, and David Hernandez (2-3) pitched an inning in relief to earn the victory as four Phillies pitchers combined on a two-hit shutout.
Hellickson held Miami to a run over eight innings in a 4-1 win five days ago. The 29-year-old has been the subject of trade rumors, some connecting him to the Marlins.
