Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Miguel Rojas stroked RBI triples in a four-run Miami second inning, leading the host Marlins to an 11-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

Chisholm knocked in three runs, and Rojas, Jesus Sanchez and Joey Wendle each had two RBIs as the Marlins won three of four games in the series.

Reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and an RBI double for the Phillies, who have lost five of their past six games.

Zack Wheeler (0-2), who led the National League in strikeouts and finished second in the Cy Young voting last year, took the loss. Wheeler allowed eight hits, three walks and seven runs in three-plus innings. He struck out three and ran his ERA to 9.39.

It was Wheeler's shortest start since he went three innings on June 22, 2021.

Elieser Hernandez (1-1) earned the win, allowing five hits, one walk and one run in six innings. All five runs allowed by Hernandez this year have come on home runs, including the shot by Harper.

Miami's first four batters reached during its explosive second inning. Brian Anderson walked on five pitches, and Chisholm tripled down the first-base line, scoring Anderson. Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins was holding Anderson on but still couldn't catch Chisholm's sizzling grounder.

With the infield in, Bryan De La Cruz singled for his first RBI of the year. Rojas then hit an opposite-field triple down the line in right. After a pair of groundouts, Sanchez singled to drive in Rojas, making it 4-0.

The Marlins extended their lead to 5-0 in the third. Anderson walked, went to second on De La Cruz's hit and scored on Rojas' single.

Miami knocked Wheeler out in the fourth as Jorge Soler was hit by a pitch, Sanchez singled, and Jesus Aguilar walked. Wendle then greeted reliever Christopher Sanchez with a two-run single.

Harper swung at the first pitch he saw in the fifth, cutting Philadelphia's deficit to 7-1 on his second homer of the year.

But the Marlins scored two runs in the sixth, and the Phillies never got closer than a seven-run deficit the rest of the way.
