PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Roy Halladay had another impressive outing, Jayson Werth hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on Thursday.

There was a moment of silence before the game for former Phillies pitcher Robin Roberts, who died Thursday morning.

Halladay (6-1) allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings. He tied a season-high with nine strikeouts, and even talked manager Charlie Manuel into letting him get one more out after allowing a run in the seventh.

Raul Ibanez also homered for the Phillies, who took the last three in a four-game series matching a pair of NL division leaders.

Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse (0-2) allowed five runs -- three earned -- and nine hits in four innings.
