Roy Halladay found a remedy for his early-season woes - the Miami Marlins.
Halladay earned his 200th career victory Sunday, bouncing back from consecutive poor outings to pitch eight innings and help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the offensively challenged Marlins 2-1.
Halladay (1-2) allowed five hits, walked one and lowered his ERA from 14.73 to 7.63. He was facing a Miami team ranked last in the majors in runs and home runs and playing without Giancarlo Stanton, sidelined by a bruised left shoulder.
''Stanton wasn't in there, and offensively they haven't been as good,'' Halladay said. ''But I feel like if I can make pitches confidently and make them early in the count, I can be successful.''
That's what Halladay did against the Marlins (2-10), who have scored only 20 runs all season.
The victory counted, just the same. Halladay's the 109th pitcher to reach the 200-win milestone, and the first to do so in a Phillies uniform since Hall of Famer Steve Carlton in 1978.
