Worth noting

• The Marlins entered Tuesday leading the season series against the Phillies, 7-6, and having won six of the last nine meetings between the clubs.

• Giancarlo Stanton's 0-for-4 performance in Monday's 3-1 loss ended his road home run streak at six games, a Marlins record. Stanton was the first Major Leaguer to accomplish the feat since the Indians' Travis Hafner, who did it in September 2005.

• Though his club is not in contention, Guillen said he is in favor of the two Wild Card system implemented this season.

"I think it's a great idea," Miami's skipper said before Tuesday's game in Philadelphia. "I think it's great for baseball. I think that's the hardest thing to do in baseball, win the Wild Card. Because now so many teams play well ... I think it's very great for the fans and very good for the cities that are involved."

• Despite his 0-for-3 clip on Monday, Reyes is hitting .350 (35 for 11) with 10 doubles, two triples and four RBIs in 24 games against the Phillies since the start of the 2011 season.
