MIAMI (AP) — Rookie Sixto Sánchez pitched a three-hitter over seven innings for his first complete game in five major league starts, leading the Miami Marlins over Philadelphia 2-1 in a doubleheader opener to close on the second-place Phillies in the NL East. Facing the organization that traded him before the 2019 season, Sanchez (3-1) struck out four, walked three and hit a batter. He became the second Marlins pitcher to go the distance by his fifth game. Miami (22-20), in line for a playoff berth as a wild card, moved within a half-game of the Phillies (23-21).
