Phillies Vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Philadelphia Defeats Arizona 3-0

The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night, shutting out their opponents by a final score of 3-0.

Starting pitcher Roy Halladay, reliever Josh Lindblom, and closer Jonathan Papelbon combined for a four hitter en route to the victory. Halladay picked up the win after pitching seven innings, allowing three hits while walking one and striking out five. Papelbon was awarded his 24th save of the season.

Halladay and company got their run support from a number of sources. The Phillies went up 1-0 in the third inning after a solo home run from catcher Erik Katz. An inning later, Katz was walked with the bases loaded, scoring first baseman Ryan Howard. In the eighth, Philadelphia made it 3-0 after a single by left fielder Domonic Brown that sent home third baseman Kevin Frandsen.

The win improves Philadelphia's record to 48-59 overall, while the Diamondbacks fall to 55-52. The third and final game of the series will be played Sunday at 1:35 p.m. Eastern Time.
