MIAMI — The Phillies are on a mission to end their season on a high note.

With a 4-1 win over the Marlins, the Phillies put themselves at one game above .500. If they can win two in Washington, that will give them 83 wins and a winning season.

Cole Hamels capped off a tremendous season with a seven innings of one-run ball. The left-hander fanned eight, surrendering only one run on five hits and a walk.

Hamels finished the season with a career-high in wins with 17 as well as a career-high 216 strikeouts. To go along with that, Hamels finished with a 3.05 ERA and 215 1/3 innings pitched.

The Phillies gave Hamels a 3-0 lead in the 1st inning. Chase Utley hit a sacrifice fly following a lead-off walk and single by Jimmy Rollins and Juan Pierre respectively to make it 1-0.

Carlos Ruiz hit an RBI double, the first of three hits for the All-Star catcher, to make it 2-0. Ruiz then scored on Nate Schierholtz’s RBI single to make it 3-0.

Miami got their only run off Hamels in the 4th inning on a Carlos Lee RBI single.

The Phillies added insurance in the 7th on Domonic Brown’s sacrifice fly.

2B: Ruiz (31).
