PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Dan Uggla's only hit Saturday, an RBI double, lifted Florida to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, their fourth straight.

Uggla's double put Florida in front 4-1 with two outs in the top of the eighth.

Chris Coghlan led Florida with two hits and one RBI.

Jorge Cantu added a hit and a sacrifice fly for the Marlins, who have won the first two contests in the regular season-ending three-game series.

Winner Anibal Sanchez (4-8) yielded a run and five hits in seven innings.

Closer Leo Nunez earned his 26th save with a scoreless ninth.

Jayson Werth led Philadelphia with two hits -- one an eighth-inning two-run homer.

Ryan Howard hit a solo shot and scored twice for the Phillies, who have lost three in a row.

The losing pitcher was starter Cole Hamels (10-11).

Despite its loss, Philadelphia clinched home field advantage in the NL playoffs.
