Halladay wins in return from disabled list

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Roy Halladay was supposed to rehab in Reading on Sunday.  Instead, he got the win in an impromptu return to the Phillies.

Halladay pitched six strong innings in his return from the disabled list and John Mayberry Jr. homered to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Halladay allowed just two runs on four hits while striking out two to get the win.

Cody Asche had two hits with a double and two RBIs.  New acquisition Roger Bernadina had two RBIs and two phenomenal catches in center field for the Phillies, who have won six of their last eight games.

A.J. Pollock had three hits, including a three-run homer, for Arizona, which has lost four of five.

The game started just 11 hours and 25 minutes after the final out at 2:12 a.m. of Saturday's 7-hour, 6-minute marathon that set a record for length of time of a game for both clubs. This one was more conventional, taking 2 hours, 49 minutes.
