May 21, 2013 at 11:57 PM

MIAMI, May 21 (UPI) -- Tyler Cloyd hurled seven solid innings and Ryan Howard backed him with three RBI Tuesday in the Philadelphia Phillies' 7-3 win over Miami.

Cloyd (1-0), making his second start of the season, yielded two runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out five.

The right-hander, seeking to replace the injured Roy Halladay in the Phillies' starting rotation, was coming off a 6 1/3-inning, two-run performance in his May 10 debut.

Howard sparked a four-run seventh inning with a two-run single and added another RBI hit in the eighth while Delmon Young went 2-for-4 with a solo homer for the Phils, who evened their three-game series.

Miami's Duane Below (0-1) absorbed the loss after starter Jose Fernandez had tossed five innings of one-run ball.

Juan Pierre, Jordan Brown and Justin Ruggiano each supplied an RBI in the Marlins' loss.
