PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Roy Halladay cruised through eight innings, Raul Ibanez drove in three runs with three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 on Friday night.
Halladay (11-8) allowed five hits and a walk while striking out nine on a 92-degree evening at Citizens Bank Park. The right-hander threw 116 pitches in his first win since July 5 against Atlanta.
One day after the Phillies fired hitting coach Milt Thompson and replaced him with Greg Gross, manager Charlie Manuel tinkered with his struggling offense against Rockies starter Aaron Cook (4-6). Manuel benched Shane Victorino, moved Jayson Werth to center field and inserted Ross Gload in right.
