PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Andrew Heaney's fastball didn't go where he wanted quite often.

Heaney was roughed up in his second career start and the Miami Marlins lost 7-4 to the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Heaney (0-2) gave up five runs and four hits in five-plus innings. Garrett Jones hit a two-run homer off B.J. Rosenberg in the eighth, but it was too late for a rally.

"I kept making mistakes with fastballs," Heaney said. "I went deep in counts too many times. I got some good swings and misses with my slider."

Manager Mike Redmond saw some positives.

"For a young guy, he held up well," Redmond said. "He changed speeds well and I really like his changeup. He made adjustments and continued to pitch. He competed."

Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer and David Buchanan threw five effective innings to help the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak.

Buchanan (4-3) allowed two runs and six hits to help the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak. The rookie right-hander struck out Marcell Ozuna on a 3-2 changeup with two runners on and two outs in the fifth, preserving a 4-2 lead. He pumped his fist and shouted as he walked off the mound.

After being shut out Monday for the 10th time this season and seventh time in their last 25 home games, the Phillies jumped ahead 3-0 in the first inning.

Jimmy Rollins was hit by a pitch leading off and Chase Utley walked one out later. On a double steal, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia's throw to third bounced away for an error and Rollins scored to snap the team's 21-inning scoreless streak at Citizens Bank Park, dating to June 15.

After Ryan Howard struck out, Byrd hit a 419-foot shot out to left-center to make it 3-0.
