Tom Koehler yielded four runs in seven innings and struck out seven Thursday in a win over the Phillies.
The win was Koehler's first in seven starts dating back to Aug. 17. It came even though he gave up four runs for the first time since Aug. 6. Overall, Koehler was 10-10 with a 3.81 ERA in 191 1/3 innings this year. There isn't really any breakthrough potential here, but the Marlins have to be happy with his development; very little was expected of him as an 18th-round pick out of Stony Brook in 2008. He'll be back in next year's rotation. Sep 25 - 7:41 PM

Even without factoring in the decision, the start marked the seventh straight in which Koehler has allowed three or fewer runs. The right-hander is 9-9 with a 3.71 ERA heading into the home stretch. He's got a divisional date with the Nationals up next on Friday.
