Recap


Phillies 8, Cardinals 2 (7): Roy Halladay yielded two hits - both solo home runs - in seven innings and host Philadelphia also used a five-run first inning to snap a four-game losing streak.

Halladay (2-2), who won his 200th career game in his last start, retired 14 in a row after Carlos Beltran's home run in the second inning - his second in as many nights. The game was called in the middle of the seventh inning because of rain.

Humberto Quintero had two hits and two RBIs for the Phillies. St. Louis starter Jaime Garcia (1-1) allowed eight runs (four earned) and nine hits in three innings and Matt Holliday also homered for the Cardinals.

Philadelphia opened the scoring when John Mayberry Jr. doubled home Chase Utley with two outs in the first. Garcia thought he was out of the inning when Ty Wigginton corralled Kevin Frandsen's hard grounder, but Wigginton's throw sailed wide of first and allowed two runs to score.

Revere followed with his first extra-base hit of the season - a triple to score Frandsen - and Quintero delivered a double to plate Revere. Utley and Quintero added RBI singles in the second and third innings, respectively.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Phillies 1B Ryan Howard, who has one homer in 62 at-bats, did not play because of tightness in his right groin. He is listed as day-to-day. ... Philadelphia scored prior to the sixth inning for the first time in eight games and scored more than three runs for the first time during that span. ... Phillies' batters hadn't walked in four straight games - the 10th team since 1950 to accomplish the feat - before Utley worked a base on balls to start the first-inning outburst.
