MIAMI - By the time Cole Hamels concluded his latest masterpiece, a 4-0 shutout of the Marlins that extended his scoreless innings streak to 22, he had his pick of metrics in which to take pride. An ERA that stood at 2.91, eighth in the National League. A win total that grew to 13, tied for fifth. Strikeouts? 158, good enough for third in the league. But for a pitcher who spent 2010 and 2011 watching Roy Halladay grind his way into the later innings of nearly every start, the innings total means the most.

MIAMI - A person familiar with the negotiations says third baseman Placido Polanco has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the Marlins hadn't announced a deal. Polanco, 37, battled injuries this year and hit .257 with two home runs and 19 RBIs in 90 games with the Phillies. The 15-year veteran is a career .299 hitter with 103 homers. The deal solidifies the Marlins' lineup following an offseason payroll purge.

Second in a series that looks at the NL East teams.   THE FOLLOWING could be entries for the Miami Marlins' 2013 marketing campaign: The Miami Marlins . . . because LeBron James and the Heat aren't in season. The Miami Marlins . . . because a ticket includes free admission to the Clevelander, the in-ballpark club where "scantily clad" is the dress code. The Miami Marlins . . . because Dexter will kill you if you don't go. The Miami Marlins . . . because it's Dress Like Tubbs and Crockett Night every Friday.

The Phillies scored only two runs on five hits combined during two consecutive losses to the Miami Marlins. Jump-starting the offense won't be easy Monday night when they open a three-game series in San Francisco against the Giants. The Phillies will face 23-year-old lefthander Madison Bumgarner, who is off to a sizzling start. Bumgarner, who is 2-0 with a 0.00 career record in two World Series games, is 3-0 with a 1.55 ERA this season. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his six starts.

According to CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies have granted bench coach Larry Bowa permission to speak to the Miami Marlins about their managerial job. Dan Jennings, the Marlins' general-manager-turned-manager, is reportedly set to return to the front office. Bowa, who turns 70 in December, is expected to interview with the Marlins on Monday, according to MLB.com. He was one of four coaches the Phillies asked to return for next season. Pitching coach Bob McClure, hitting coach Steve Henderson, and first-base coach Juan Samuel were the others.

THE PHILLIES signed three players to minor league contracts yesterday: first baseman Chris McGuiness, and righthanded pitchers Kevin Slowey and Sean O'Sullivan. All three players received invitations to spring training as nonroster invitees. Pitchers and catchers will hold their first workout in Clearwater, Fla., on Feb. 19. McGuiness, 26, hit .264 with a .770 OPS and nine home runs in 126 games at Indianapolis last season, the Triple A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. He appeared in 10 big-league games with Texas in 2013.

NEW YORK general manager Brian Cashman characterized as "false" a blog post by political pundit Keith Olbermann claiming the Yankees recently had discussions with the Miami Marlins about trading Alex Rodriguez to his hometown. Olbermann posted the item Wednesday afternoon on his only occasionally updated Baseball Nerd blog, which is affiliated with MLB. The item read, in part: "The New York Yankees have held discussions with the Miami Marlins about a trade involving their third baseman in crisis, Alex Rodriguez.

IN A DIFFERENT time, when I was more naïve about the dramatic effects of performance-enhancing drugs, I guess I would have been impressed by the spectacular display by Miami Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton during Monday's Home Run Derby. I might have even believed the 61 home runs Stanton smashed out of Petco Park were "spectacular. " Even though the purpose of the contest is to intentionally deliver pitches that batters can blast out of ballpark, the fact Stanton destroyed the previous single-night mark of 41 set by then-Phillie Bobby Abreu in 2005 was amazing in terms of record-breaking margins for any event.

Go ahead, try. Try to explain how the Phillies, now one quarter into this season, are on the verge of first place, just a half-game behind. Try to understand how just about every win follows the same formula, the familiar late-inning drama powered by proficient pitching and well-timed hitting. The Phillies beat the Miami Marlins, 4-2, Wednesday without their best hitter. They fielded an outfield that had combined for zero home runs and batted a bench player third. The manager's strategy when he assembles his lineup is "Why not?"

Born in Ecuador, Lizardo Ortiz has been a legal permanent resident of the United States since 2008. A welder with the strong hands to show for it, he lives in Downingtown with his wife, Rosa. Ortiz, 61, has been eligible to become an American citizen for the last three years. But only now has he decided to apply. Did the harsh immigration rhetoric of the presidential campaign spur him to act? Was he moved by the hard lines of some GOP candidates, chiefly Donald Trump, who this week said he would block remittances to families in Mexico to pay for his "beautiful" border wall?

MIAMI - Cody Asche launched two home runs-including an upper-deck shot - and Aaron Harang delivered what was only his second quality start since May as the Phillies snapped a six-game losing skid with a 6-2 win over the Miami Marlins last night. Asche, who lost his third base job a month into the season and was losing his grip on a starting job, period, entering the season's final month, enjoyed the first multi-home run game of his career in the victory. He has homered four times in his last eight games.

DARNELL SWEENEY'S first session of batting practice as a Phillie was somewhat unassuming by interim manager Pete Mackanin's standards. Sweeney was making contact, his swing looked clean, but Mackanin didn't hear that "pop" that he looks for in a major league hitter. "I was just talking to [coaches] Larry Bowa and Steve Henderson about the first time he took batting practice, and we kind of agreed that the ball wasn't coming off his bat in batting practice very well and he wasn't really popping the ball," Mackanin said.

MIAMI - The day after he made his first major-league hit a pinch-hit home run, Darnell Sweeney started his first big-league game. The Phillies' newest position player manned center field and batted sixth in the team's 2-0 win against the Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon. He did not manage a hit, but drew walks in three of his four plate appearances in the finale of the four-game series at Marlins Park. The start capped a memorable first weekend for Sweeney, whose first series as a big-leaguer came about a 20-minute drive from his childhood home in Hollywood, Fla. It also was against one of his good friends in Dee Gordon, the Marlins' two-time all-star second baseman whose .335 batting average is the best in baseball.

MIAMI - The nature of Darnell Sweeney's first major-league hit was especially fitting, given the player he was traded for just three nights before. Although it wasn't a grand slam like Chase Utley's first hit in April 2003, Sweeney's pinch-hit solo shot sparked the Phillies' come-from-behind, 4-2 win against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The estimated 445-foot home run at Marlins Park accounted for the first of the team's two, two-out runs that tied the game in the eighth inning.

MIAMI - The odes to and appreciations of Chase Utley - and the reminiscing of his greatest hits and quotes and plays - can go only so far in the 24-hour period after the seismic trade was completed. Eventually, the focus returns to the product on the field. Thankfully for the good folks who put in deposits on season- ticket orders last winter, the Utley hangover took place about 1,200 miles away from South Philly and closer to the South Beach, where no one gives a darn about baseball.

FIRST, the good news. Cole Hamels did not allow a home run and Chase Utley ended his weeklong drought without a hit last night against the Miami Marlins. Hamels had entered the night leading the major leagues with seven home runs allowed through three starts, already halfway to his 2014 total. Utley was flirting with breaking whatever they call the line that is 100 points lower than the Mendoza line - the Michael Martinez line? Utley got his hit out of the way early and Hamels labored through six innings, but pitched well enough to put the Phillies in position to collect their third win in their last four games.
