MIAMI -

Darin Ruf and Kevin Frandsen drove in runs without a hit in the first inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat Miami 2-1 on Tuesday night to hand the Marlins their 100th loss of the season.

It's the second triple-digit-loss season in Marlins history, joining the 108-defeat year in 1998. Mike Redmond, the first-year Marlins manager, was a rookie on that team, playing in 37 games.

Ruf drew a bases-loaded walk, Frandsen followed with an RBI groundout and that was all the offense that the Phillies would need. Michael Stutes (3-1) got the win by working a scoreless fifth inning in relief, and Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 29th save in 36 chances.

Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez (4-6) allowed five hits and struck out five in seven innings.
