You can’t ask for a better matchup than this.
The final: Florida 2, Philly 1.
Johnson went seven innings only allowing Ryan Howard‘s eighth homer leading off the 2nd. Halladay (5-2) took the loss giving up only five hits in eight innings. He allowed two runs, but the 8th inning game winner was unearned.
The loss ended Halladay’s streak of wins in 13 consecutive starts against NL East teams since July 5, 2010.
The Phillies lost for only the fourth time in their past 22 games in Miami.
The Marlins’ 21-14 start matches their best in franchise history.
