Phillies Vs. Nationals Final Score: Roy Halladay Leads Philly To 4-2 Win

The Phillies won their second straight game against the NL East-leading Nationals on Saturday night, thanks to another solid start by Roy Halladay. He allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out six and walked just one on the way to victory. The two-time Cy Young winner is 4-1 with a 2.75 ERA after missing 42 games for the Phillies this season.

Halladay pretty much owns the Nationals, improving to 12-2 in his 17 career starts against the franchise.

Philly jumped out to an early lead on Saturday when Chase Utley and John Mayberry both hit RBI singles. Mayberry added another run for the Phillies with a solo home run in the sixth inning, then another in the eighth when hit sacrificed to right field to score Utley.

Steve Lombardozzi plated the Nationals' only run with an RBI single in the fifth inning.
