Win No. 200 For Halladay As Phils Beat Marlins 2-1

MIAMI (AP) — Roy Halladay earned his 200th career victory Sunday, bouncing back from consecutive poor outings to pitch eight innings and help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 2-1.

Laynce Nix broke a 1-all tie with his second pinch-hit homer of the season in the ninth inning.

Halladay (1-2) allowed five hits, walked one and lowered his ERA from 14.73 to 7.63. He’s the 109th pitcher to reach the 200-win milestone, and the first to do so in a Phillies uniform since Hall of Famer Steve Carlton in 1978.

Rocky efforts in Halladay’s two previous starts raised doubts about the future of the two-time Cy Young Award winner, who went only 11-8 and battled injuries in 2012. But he regained his winning form against the Marlins, who have scored only 20 runs in 12 games.
