After six weeks on the disabled list, Phillies ace Roy Halladay returned to the mound Tuesday night in the Phillies 3-2 win over the Dodgers.

Roy Halladay pitched five effective innings in his first start off the disabled list, Hunter Pence hit a go-ahead, two-out single in the eighth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Tuesday night for their fourth straight victory.

The Phillies loaded the bases in the eighth when Ronald Belisario (3-1) walked Chase Utley with two outs, then hit Ryan Howard on the foot with a 1-2 pitch and plunked Carlos Ruiz on a full count. Pence greeted Kenley Jansen with a sharp single to center, scoring Utley and pinch-runner John Mayberry Jr. and giving him a team-high 55 RBIs.

Kyle Kendrick (3-8) got the victory, allowing two hits in 1-2/3 scoreless innings.
