MIAMI Who’s been in and who’s been out, and where they’ve hit in the lineup for the most part has been irrelevant for this run- and hit-starved Marlins team. Friday, their no-octane offense looked even worse without Giancarlo Stanton, and the results were predictable. Sans Stanton, a late scratch due to a sore left shoulder, the Marlins lost for the ninth time in 10 games and their sixth in a row, a 3-1 decision to the Phillies in 10 innings at Marlins Park. The Phillies rallied off Jon Rauch, getting a two-out RBI-triple from Chase Utley and an RBI-infield hit from Michael Young.
