Halladay wins again as Phillies top Rangers 3-2

Ben Francisco and Raul Ibanez homered, and
Roy Halladay threw eight strong innings to lead the Philadelphia
Phillies to a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
Halladay (6-3) struck out seven and walked one for the NL
East-leading Phillies.
Francisco hit a two-run shot in the second inning and Ibanez hit
a solo homer in the fourth to give Hallday the support he needed to
end a personal two-game losing streak. Halladay lost consecutive
complete games because the Phillies failed to score more than two
runs in either start.
C.J. Wilson (4-3) had an otherwise strong outing for Texas,
striking out 10 in seven innings.
Ryan Madson worked the ninth for his eighth save. David Murphy
was caught stealing at second to end the game.
