Pirates beat Halladay, split series

The Phillies were in an excellent position to sweep the two-game set from the Pirates last night. After Monday's 12 run outburst and Kyle Kendrick's spectacular performance, the Phils had Roy Halladay on the mound for the finale. The bats just didn't cooperate.

'Doc' threw yet another complete game, allowing two runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six. It came in a losing effort as the Phils failed to muster up much at the plate with the exception of Ryan Howard. The big guy had three of the team's six hits and scored their only run on a Juan Castro single in the sixth.

Still, the Phils have been red hot and on a roll. They open up a two-game set with the Cubs tonight before welcoming the Boston Red Sox to town for the weekend.
