The Doctor is In: Halladay leads Phils past Cubs

PBR- Roy Halladay was at it again. Halladay went eight innings and gave up only three runs, and scored two runs in a 8-7 Phillies win over the Cubs.

Carlos Ruiz sparked the offense, with four hits and three RBIs. Hunter Pence drove in two and scored two on two hits for the Phillies.

For the Cubs, Halladay locked them down. Shortstop Starlin Castro had a two-run blast, plating right fielder David DeJesus and giving the Cubs their two runs.

Chicago starter Chris Volstad only went two innings, giving up four runs on six hits.

Of the Phillies eight runs, only five were earned.

After leading 8-3 in the ninth inning, the Cubs stormed back making it a one run game.

Jonathan Papelbon closed out the game for his 11th save.

Tomorrow the Phillies travel back to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Red Sox, beginning interleague play.

Daniel Bard will start for Boston, while Cole Hamels looks for his sixth win for Philadelphia.
