PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Roy Halladay bounced back from his shortest stint of the season to strike out eight in eight innings and lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Raul Ibanez and Carlos Ruiz each had two RBIs to lead the Phillies to their fifth straight win.

Halladay (12-4) had trouble pitching in the heat and humidity in his last start at Chicago and left after four-plus innings. It was 94 degrees for the first pitch Sunday, and Halladay allowed three runs and eight hits and didn't get the side in order until the sixth.

He labored through the first five innings, then retired the last 10 batters.
