    Ricky Nolasco pitched seven strong innings, Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run home run, and the Miami Marlins completed a three-game sweep of the struggling Philadelphia Phillies with a 5-2 win Sunday.

    It was the first Marlins sweep of the Phillies since August 7-9, 2009, at Citizens Bank Park.

    All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton also homered, and Omar Infante and John Buck each had RBI doubles for the Marlins, who have won four straight.

    Nolasco (7-6) struck out six as he scattered five hits and allowed two runs. Nolasco improved to 8-4 with a 3.59 ERA over 14 starts against the Phillies.

    With the Marlins leading 3-2 in the top of the eighth, Steve Cishek allowed two singles before getting Shane Victorino to fly out to end the inning.
