MIAMI -

Carlos Lee's game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over Philadelphia and eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention Friday night.

The Phillies overcame a horrible first half and came from way behind to get within three games of St. Louis for the second wild card spot. But they lost five of the next six to fall out of the chase.

Bryan Petersen began the ninth with a double to right field off Josh Lindblom (3-4). Jose Reyes grounded out and Giancarlo Stanton was intentionally walked setting up the at-bat with Lee. Lee lined a single to left-center field scoring Petersen from second as Laynce Nix's throw to home was off-line.

Steve Cishek (5-2) pitched one inning in relief for the win.
