Willingham HR Fuels Marlins Victory

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Josh Willingham homered and drove in two runs in his return to Florida's lineup in powering the Marlins to a 4-2 win over Philadelphia.

Willingham, who hadn't played since Saturday because of kidney stones, hit a solo homer and an RBI grounder.

Pinch-hitter Alfredo Amezaga drove in the tiebreaking run on a fielder's choice grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to help Florida avoid a three-game sweep.

Taylor Tankersley pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. He's 5 and 1. Kevin Gregg finished for his 24th save in 26 chances. Brett Myers is 2-and-4 with the loss.
