Phillies Back Halladay’s Final Start of 2012 With Win

MIAMI — Roy Halladay finished the 2012 season with a 4.49 ERA. But he also finished with a win.

In a performance that was again mediocre by Halladay’s standards, Doc got the win in the Phillies 9-5 win over Miami. Halladay allowed five runs on six hits and three walks, striking out seven in five innings to bring his final record to 11-8.

Miami jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the 1st inning. Halladay surrendered four singles and a walk in the inning.

Pete Orr’s two-run double in the 2nd inning brought the Phillies to within 3-2. But after a Giancarlo Stanton’s solo homer in the 4th, the Marlins made some room with a 4-2 lead.

The Phillies got Halladay the only lead he would need in the 5th inning. Chase Utley hit a two-run single and Domonic Brown had an RBI triple to give the Phillies a 5-4 lead.

The Phillies padded the lead in the 7th with a Carlos Ruiz two-run single, making it a 7-4 game.

2B: Orr (5), Ruiz (30), Ruf (2). 3B: Brown (2).

Boxscore.

MIAMI — In the 12th battle between two perfect game pitchers, it was Mark Buehrle who prevailed over Roy Halladay.

Pitching in the same city that he threw his perfect game over two years ago, Halladay was bested by Buehrle, who had a little bit of help from Greg Dobbs. Dobbs drove in two runs, including the go ahead homer in the 6th that gave the Marlins a 8-2 victory to prevent the sweep.

After three innings of dealing, Halladay was the first to give in.

MIAMI — The Marlins pulled out the brooms and successfully swept the Phillies in their home park.

Philadelphia, making its first trip to Miami’s new stadium, fell again, 5-2, and were swept but the 4th place Marlins. The Phillies started the series only half a game behind Miami to get out of the cellar but they instead distanced themselves further in the bottom of the NL East.

Joe Blanton rebounded from a rocky first three innings to pitch a solid effort. He went six, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Blanton gave up back-to-back doubles and an RBI single in the 2nd inning to cough up a 1-0 lead created in the first by Juan Pierre’s triple and Hunter Pence’s RBI on a fielder’s choice.

Infante Homers Twice As New-Look Fish Beat Phils

No Giancarlo Stanton? No problem says Miami, who found their power source elsewhere Monday afternoon.

Spoiling the home opener for the Phillies, Miami went into Philadelphia without their most dangerous hitter against one of the division’s premier aces and dominated.

It was Omar Infante who was the unlikely power source in the Marlins 6-2 win.

Infante hit two solo home runs off starter Cole Hamels and reliever Joe Savery, his second and third dingers of the season. Austin Kearns, who was playing in place of Stanton, also homered late in the game off Jonathan Papelbon, who was pitching in relief to get some work in.
