    The Phillies score four runs in the first inning and that's all the offense they needed to beat the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

    Roy Halladay outlasted Tim Lincecum in a matchup of two-time Cy Young Award winners, leading the Philadelphia Phillies past the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Monday night.

    Halladay (3-0) struck out six and allowed seven hits in eight innings on a crisp and cool spring night along the bay. He also had an RBI single in a rematch of aces from the 2010 NL championship series.

    Laynce Nix's two-run double highlighted a four-run first off Lincecum (0-2) that produced all the power Philadelphia needed. The Phillies chased San Francisco's shaggy-haired and struggling right-hander after he gave up five runs and eight hits in six innings.
