Valdez, Phils halt D-Backs win streak

Wilson Valdez's two-run double broke a tie 2, snapping Arizona's seven-game winning streak.

Arizona took the opener of this three-game series between division leaders by getting the better of Roy Halladay in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 3-2 win.

Cliff Lee (13-7) picked up his fellow ace with seven quality innings, allowing two runs on three hits while fanning seven and walking a pair to earn the win.

Joe Saunders (8-10) matched Lee for the first six frames but was pulled after Valdez skyed a ball to straightaway center field that kept sailing over Chris Young's head.
