Cardinals Vs. Phillies Final Score: St. Louis Falls, 3-1

Philadelphia Phillies starter Roy Halladay hasn't had the best year of his career in 2012, but he looked like the Doc of old on Friday night vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. Halladay threw eight innings of one-run ball as the Phillies scored a 3-1 victory on Friday night.

Cardinals star Carlos Beltran smacked a homer to right in the second inning, but the lead would only slip away from there. In the bottom of the second, Phillies right fielder Dominic Brown singled to right to score Ryan Howard to tie the game. The game would stay scoreless until the bottom of the eighth, when Chase Utley hit a two-run bomb off Barret Browning to go up 3-1.

St. Louis wasted another stellar outing from Kyle Lohse, who lowered his season ERA to 2.72 by allowing only one run over seven innings. He also struck out seven.
