    MIAMI (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies finally figured out how to keep the Florida Marlins off the bases.

    Terry Adams (4-5) pitched seven innings and retired the last 11 batters he faced as the Phillies beat the Florida Marlins 7-3 Thursday night.

    Dan Plesac and Carlos Silva retired the final six hitters. No Phillies pitcher issued a walk -- after giving up 19 in the last two games.

    "If I had walked a couple, runs would have followed,'' Adams said. "Everyone knows walks are free runs.''

    Adams struck out four and walked none. His seven innings pitched tied a season high. It is the third time he's done it this season.

    "I didn't know how long I was going to be out there,'' Adams said. "I just wanted to give the team a chance. The more pitches I throw, the stronger my arm seems to be.''

    Marlon Anderson tied a career high, driving in four runs with a home run and a two-run double. The Phillies took 3 out of 4 from the Marlins, who finished their longest homestand of the season at 7-6.

    "We're struggling to patch our pitching together,'' Marlins manager Jeff Torborg said. "You can't make a mistake against these guys. They'll murder you. I'll be glad to get our DL guys back.''

    Starting pitchers Brad Penny and Josh Beckett are on the disabled list, but Penny is scheduled to return on July 2 and Beckett on July 16.

    Anderson hit a two-run homer off Olsen in the second. His double in the fourth inning scored Travis Lee and Mike Lieberthal and gave Philadelphia a 4-1 lead.

    "Their pitcher left a couple of fastballs up and I took advantage of them,'' Anderson said. "Tonight, it was my opportunity. Everybody is playing hard. As long as we keep winning and scoring runs, that's all that matters. This is something we want to keep doing.''

    Kevin Olsen (0-5) is winless in nine starts this season.

    "I threw a lot of pitches,'' Olsen said. "I had a chance to put Anderson away with a 1-2 count, then he hurt me with the home run. Then I got behind him the next at bat and got one over the plate.''

    Cliff Floyd hit a solo home run, his 16th, off Adams in the fourth. Later in the inning, outfielder Bobby Abreu lost sight of the ball after Derrek Lee popped up. Lee went to second and later scored on a single by Eric Owens to close the gap to 4-3. The Phillies loaded the bases in the seventh inning. Relief pitcher Nate Teut, making his first career relief appearance, walked Pat Burrell to force in a run. Scott Rolen singled to drive in two more.
