Analysis: Philadelphia chased Fernandez (2-1, 3.78 ERA) with three runs in the fifth en route to its first home win of the season. Last season's NL Rookie of the Year was tagged for eight hits and a career-worst six earned runs in four-plus innings. The right-hander walked four, matching a career high, and struck out six. He gave up only one run over 18 innings in three appearances against Philadelphia last season.

Analysis: Fernandez (2-0) improved his career record at home to 11-0 even though he was at less than his best. He allowed his first two walks of the season back to back. His foot slipped on a delivery, and the pitch bounced several feet in front of the plate. One frustrating inning ended with the Marlins' ace shaking his head and screaming angrily into his glove. But Fernandez allowed only three hits, walked two and struck out eight. Three relievers followed to complete a five-hitter.
