For one afternoon, Roy Halladay was back.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner returned to the city where he pitched a perfect game and collected his 200th career win.

Halladay, who had gotten off to a horrendous start to the 2013 season, held the Miami Marlins to one run in eight sharp innings and Layne Nix hit a pinch-hit home run in the eighth to lead the Phillies to a 2-1 win.

The Phillies (6-6) have won back-to-back series after starting the season with four losses in their first six games.

Although Halladay was facing a Marlins team that had scored 16 runs in its first nine games and had Placido Polanco and Greg Dobbs batting third and fourth in the batting order on Sunday, he had to at least be encouraged with the ability to go deep into a game.

Halladay didn’t record an out in the fifth inning in either of his first two starts. Halladay entered the afternoon 0-2 with a 14.73 ERA.

Among the 156 major leaguers to start a game this season, Halladay’s Era ranked 154th. Only Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco (17.18) and Seattle’s Brandon Mauer (16.20) had been worse.
