PHILADELPHIA -- Roy Halladay was far from perfect this time, and still good enough to win.
Halladay (8-3) allowed 10 hits and walked one, but held San Diego to two runs in his first game since his gem at Florida last Saturday.
"He bared down when he had to," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He knows how to make pitches. We just couldn't break through."
Halladay received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd of 45,080 as he walked in from the bullpen. There was a lighthearted groan after Chase Headley's two-out single in the first, quickly followed by more applause.
"I would love to have let them know I wasn't going to do it again," Halladay said with a laugh. "It was pretty cool. That's why it's great to play in a city like this. The fans are second to none."
"I feel really good right now," said Lidge, who made his second appearance since his second stint on the disabled list. "That was the situation I was hoping to have. It was nice to get a save against some real good hitters. We need to win the close games, too."
Latos (5-4) issued a season-high four walks in five innings, yielding three runs and four hits. The righty entered with a 1.29 ERA in his previous five outings.
The Phillies managed only five hits and struck out 11 times. They were coming off a 2-7 trip to NL East rivals New York, Florida and Atlanta.
Halladay singled with one out in the third and scored on Victorino's homer to right field.
Tony Gwynn Jr. hit an RBI single in the second and Gonzalez added a sacrifice fly in the fifth for NL West-leading San Diego, which lost right fielder Will Venable in the fifth inning when he jammed his neck sliding into third. Venable, who is day to day, was replaced by Chris Denorfia.
Halladay singled with one out in the third and scored on Victorino's ninth homer.
"Our hitting is going to be fine," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "We won the game, which is good. There's not a lot about our hitters to worry about."
Umpire Jim Joyce, whose blown call at first base cost Detroit pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game on Wednesday, was at third for the first game of the series. He was greeted with a smattering of boos during pregame introductions.Notes
