Roy Halladay left Sunday's game with a stomach bug after the first inning, but that didn't prevent the Phillies from holding off the Orioles 5-3.

Freddy Galvis hit a two-run shot off Baltimore right-hander Jason Hammel in the bottom of the fifth to give the Phillies a three-run lead.

Domonic Brown went 2-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

On the Mound:  Zach Miner tossed two innings, replacing Halladay in the second, while surrendering one run via the long ball ...  Jeremy Horst threw two scoreless innings while striking out two ...  and Ryan O' Sullivan struggled to close down the game, surrendering two earned runs in the final inning. 

At the Plate:  Michael Young went 2-3 while doubling ...  Ben Revere went 1-3 while doubling, driving in one, and scoring a run ...  and Erik Kratz notched an RBI and scored a run.

Up Next:  The Phillies will travel to Lake Buena Vista, Florida on Monday to play the Braves.  Aaron Cook will make the start in the absence of Cliff Lee, who is scheduled to pitch a minor league game tomorrow.
