MLB: Philadelphia 3, St. Louis 1

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Roy Halladay dominated the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, limiting them to two hits in eight innings and Chase Utley hit a late homer in Philadelphia's 3-1 win.

Halladay (6-6), who pitched seven shutout innings against Arizona in his previous start, yielded only a Carlos Beltran solo homer in the second inning and a John Jay single in the third, otherwise handcuffing St. Louis.

The right-hander didn't allow a walk, struck out eight and set down the last 12 batters he faced as Philadelphia took the opener of a three-game series.

Jonathan Papelbon secured the victory with his 25th save.

Domonic Brown supplied and RBI single, while Utley cracked a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Barret Browning (0-1) to break a 1-1 tie.

Cards starter Kyle Lohse held the Phillies to one run on four hits through seven full frames.
