ANIBAL SANCHEZ WON WITH TWO HOMERS BY OMAR INFANTE
Wed, 11 Apr 2012 03:53 AM EDT

That ailing shoulder isn’t a query for Anibal Sanchez.

The righty took a 3-hitter into the 7th, Omar Infante hit two solo homers and the Miami Marlins spoiled the Philadelphia Phillies’ home opener with a 6-2 victory.

Sanchez (1-0) allowed 2 runs and 6 hits in 6 1/3 innings, outpitching 2-time All-Star Cole Hamels (0-1).

Sanchez was held back a week at the start of the exhibition season due to a tender pitching shoulder and was limited during the spring training. Even director Ozzie Guillen had worries until now.

“I was worried because he missed a start in spring training,” Guillen announced. “He threw the ball well.”

A 13-game winner in 2010, Sanchez rounds out a daunting rotation as the No. 5 starter. Las Vegas odds

“I don’t really care if I’m 1st of 5th, we have got a very good rotation,” Sanchez expounded. “I’m pleased to be in it.”

Gaby Sanchez had 2 hits and 2 RBIs, Emilio Bonifacio had 3 hits and Austin Kearns hit a solo shot off Jonathan Papelbon.

Missing Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in the middle of their lineup, the Phillies continued to struggle offensively. They’ve scored 8 runs and are off to a 1-3 start. Vegas odds

“We’re not hitting the ball hard enough to score runs,” manager Charlie Manuel asserted.

The Phillies did not score till the seventh when Freddy Galvis hit a 2-run double for his 1st major league hit, snapping a 0-for-12 start.

The new-look Marlins advanced to 2-3 and bounced back after Heath Bell blew his 1st save chance for his new team in a 6-5 loss at Cincinnati on Sunday.

The Phillies are looking for their 6th straight National League East title, but anything less than a World Series title will be a disappointment in a city that has been spoiled by victory.

Injuries to Howard and Utley have dramatically lessened the big talk compared with the start of last season when the Phillies were prohibitive favorites to win it all.

After leading the majors with an organization-record 102 wins, the Phillies were eliminated in the 1st round of the playoffs by eventual champ St. Louis.

Hamels permitted 4 runs — 3 earned — and 8 hits, striking out 9 in 5 1/3 innings. The lanky lefty made the 1st start of a vital year for him. He’s establish to become a independent agent after the season and should get a profitable agreement if he goes injury-free and puts up typical numbers.

“It’s a long season,” Hamels said. “We have to go off and keep on battling. We have got to fight thru it.”

Jose Reyes, one of Miami’s 4 big-name acquisitions, led off the game with a single and Bonifacio followed with a single. After a double steal, Reyes scored on Hanley Ramirez’s groundout to 2nd base. Hamels stranded Bonifacio at 3rd by striking out Gaby Sanchez and Kearns.

A crowd of 45,574 was the 205th sequential regular-season sellout at Citizens Bank Park. The pregame festivities included players coming in from behind the stands in left-center field. They walked through the crowd, mingled with loving fans, and down a staircase placed on the caution track that led straight to the field.
