PHILADELPHIA - Anibal Sanchez took a three-hitter into the seventh, Omar Infante hit a pair of solo homers and the Miami Marlins spoiled the Philadelphia Phillies' home opener with a 6-2 victory Monday afternoon.
Sanchez (1-0 ) allowed two runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings, outpitching two-time All-Star Cole Hamels (0-1 ).
Gaby Sanchez had two hits and two RBIs, Emilio Bonifacio had three hits and Austin Kearns hit a solo shot off Jonathan Papelbon.
Missing Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in the middle of their lineup, the Phillies continued to struggle offensively. They've scored eight runs and are off to a 1-3 start. The Phillies didn't score until the seventh when Freddy Galvis hit a two-run double for his first major league hit, snapping an 0 for 12 start.
The new-look Marlins improved to 2-3 and bounced back after Heath Bell blew his first save opportunity for his new team in a 6-5 loss at Cincinnati on Sunday.
