Sept. 12, 2012 at 7:14 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Cliff Lee allowed only one unearned run over seven innings Wednesday and the Phillies won a season-high seventh straight game, 3-1 over the Miami Marlins.

Lee (5-7) tamed the Marlins on four hits while walking one and striking out six en route to his third victory in four starts.

The left-hander -- who broke a scoreless tie with a sixth-inning RBI single -- has fanned 32 and issued only three bases-on-balls over his last five games.

Phillippe Aumont tossed a scoreless eighth inning and Jonathan Papelbon corralled his 34th save for Phillies, who climbed to within 3 1/2 games of a National League wild card berth with the win.

Jimmy Rollins bashed a two-run homer in the seventh inning, putting the Phils ahead for good.

The Marlins' Josh Johnson (8-12) absorbed the loss, allowing three runs on four hits over seven full innings.

Carlos Lee got Miami's only RBI.
