|Phillies Blast Cards' Bullpen in 10-2 Win
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley each had a two-run single during Philadelphia's season-best nine-run eighth inning, lifting the Phillies to a 10-2 rout over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.
Carlos Ruiz had four hits and one of two bases-loaded walks in the eighth for NL East-leading Phillies, who have won Roy Halladay's last seven starts but put it together too late for the right-hander to become the majors' first 10-game winner. Two days earlier, Cole Hamels missed his bid for No. 10 in a 2-0 loss at Seattle.
Halladay allowed a run and four hits in six innings, matching his season low in his first official appearance in St. Louis but on the mound where he started for the American League in the 2009 All-Star game.
