    Roy Halladay was good again.

    Roy Halladay extended his scoreless innings streak to 15 straight as the Phillies beat the Nationals 1-0.

    Halladay (16-8) won his sixth straight while allowing eight hits, striking out five and walking three, matching a season high. It was the ninth time this season he hasn't allowed a run and the 25th time in 26 starts he has pitched six or more innings.

    The Phillies, who managed just four hits, scored their lone run off Jason Marquis (0-6) in the third inning on Raul Ibanez’s RBI double.

    The win lets the Phillies (69-52), who have won 13 of 17 games, keep pace at 2 1/2 games behind the Braves in the NL East.
