MIAMI (AP) Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the fading Miami Marlins 6-2 on Monday, snapping a six-game losing streak.

The Phillies' run total was their highest since Aug. 14. They rank last in the majors in runs, and managed only 11 while going 0-6 during a homestand last week.

The Marlins lost their fourth game in a row and are 11-22 since Aug. 1. They fell two games below .500 for the first time since April 27 and could be headed for a seventh consecutive losing season.

Philadelphia's Jerad Eickhoff (10-13) allowed the first two batters to score and then settled down to pitch six innings. The Phillies have won five of his past six starts.
