Athletics vs. Phillies, MLB Scores: Roy Halladay Dominant In 3-1 Phillies Win

The Oakland Athletics failed to win their eighth straight road series as they fell to Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on Sunday. Josh Outman put together a solid outing but a two-run Phillies first was more than enough as the A’s could get nothing going against a dominant Roy Halladay. Halladay earned the complete game victory over the A’s as he gave up one run on eight hits.

The A’s had some opportunities to get more runs or at least chase Halladay out of the game but could not get the timely hits. In the top of the second, the A’s put men on first and second with no outs and came away with nothing. In the seventh the A’s put men on second and third with one out and again came away with nothing.

East Bay native Jimmy Rollins led the way for the Phillies, going 4-for-4 with two runs scored. Shane Victorino and Ben Francisco each had an RBI as the Phillies improved to 49-30 and sit 4 1/2 games up on the Braves in the NL East.

The loss drops the A’s to 35-44. The Rangers are currently trailing the Mets so the A’s may not drop further than the six games back they were at when the day began. Oakland will now head home for six games against the Florida Marlins and Arizona Diamondbacks.
