PHILADELPHIA - Dustin McGowan failed to get out of the fourth inning on Thursday, surrendering four runs on four walks and three hits in the Phillies' 9-1 loss to the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park.

Michael Morse and Marcell Ozuna opened the fourth inning with back-to-back walks before both scoring on an Adeiny Hechavarria single to right. Hector Neris came on in relief, but hit a batter and surrendered a two-run single to Martin Prado before ending the inning.

The Marlins added another four runs in the sixth inning via a Prado two-run double and a two-run home run by Giancarlo Stanton.

The Phillies lone run came in the ninth on a Cesar Hernandez sacrifice fly.

Justin De Fratus was responsible for the Marlins' four run sixth, surrendering four hits and a walk.

David Phelps tossed seven innings for the Marlins to secure the win, scattering just three hits.

Hechavararria finished the day with four hits to pace the Marlins.

What's next: The Phillies open a three-game series against the Braves on Friday night at Citizens Bank Park.
