MIAMI, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Kyle Kendrick stifled the Marlins over seven shutout innings and Jimmy Rollins homered Tuesday to hand the Philadelphia Phillies a 1-0 decision over Miami.

Kendrick (5-9) notched his seventh straight victory against the Marlins, handcuffing them on five hits without issuing a walk. The right-hander allowed only one runner to get as far as third while striking out six.

Josh Lindblom tossed a scoreless eighth and Jonathan Papelbon racked up his 26th save for the Phillies, who clinched their three-game series.

Rollins led off the first inning with a solo homer off Josh Johnson (7-9) to provide the contest's only scoring.

Johnson (7-9) absorbed the hard-luck loss for the Marlins, who suffered their third consecutive shutout. The right-hander allowed only three hits over eight frames, issuing one walk and striking out seven.

Miami set a club record by going 27 straight innings without scoring a run.
