MILWAUKEE(AP) — Ryan Howard homered in his return to the lineup and Roy Halladay continued the Phillies’ pitching dominance in Milwaukee, leading Philadelphiato a 5-3 victory over the Brewers on Friday night.

The NL East’s top team won its fifth straight and bettered the NL Central-leading Brewers again.

Cole Hamels tossed a complete game in Thursday’s opener with Howard out because of a lingering heel injury. On Friday, the Phillies’ cleanup hitter staked Halladay a three-run, first-inning lead with his 32nd homer of the season.

Halladay (17-5) struck out nine to reach 204 for the season and scattered four hits and a run over eight innings after the Brewers roughed him up in April.

Milwaukeescored twice in the ninth before dropping its fourth straight.
