SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - Philadelphia pitcher Roy Halladay blew away the San Diego Padres with 14 strikeouts in the Phillies' 3-1 victory Sunday.

Halladay, last season's National League Cy Young Award winner, took a two-hitter into the ninth inning where he finally allowed a run and was relieved with two outs.

He logged 130 pitches, the most in a single game in the majors this season, and his 14 strikeouts tied a career high.

Halladay, who had 21 wins, a perfect game and a league-best nine complete games in earning his second Cy Young last year, improved to a 3-1 record with the win.
