Jimmy Rollins clubbed a go-ahead, two-run homer in the fifth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies went on to post a 6-5 victory over the Miami Marlins in the opener of a three-game series.

Rollins finished 2-for-4 as he continues to close in on the franchise's all- time hits record. He is now up to 2,215 hits, trailing only Hall of Famers Richie Ashburn (2,217) and Mike Schmidt (2,234).

Philadelphia matched a season high with a third straight win while snapping Miami's four-game winning streak at Marlins Park. The Marlins returned home after a 4-7 road trip.
