n The Phillies watched the Florida Marlins jump all over Kyle Kendrick for a 7-1 lead after two-innings and could never catch up, eventually losing 10-8.

The loss coupled with the division leading New York Mets 10-8 win over Washington dropped the Phillies 2 1/2 games behind the Mets with 17-games to go.

Kendrick, who has slumped badly over the last month, lasted only 1.1 innings, responsible for seven runs on six-hits - including Jorge Cantu's three-run homer that made it 7-1. J.A. Happ replaced Kendrick (11-9, 1-4 over last five starts) and gave up a pair of homers as the lead grew to 9-1 in the fourth

The Phillies pushed across three runs in the bottom of the innng, two coming on Ryan Howard's 41st homer of the season.

The Marlins got their final run in the 5th. The Phillies then stormed back with four runs in the sixth, two on Greg Dobbs double. But, with men on third and second, Chase Utley fouled out to shortstop to end the inning.

In the eighth, Monday night's star, Jayson Werth flied out with runners at the corners to end a threat.

The Phils-Marlins series final is Wednesday (WDEL/3:30 pm)
