Hunter Martin/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Roy Halladay made his first start for the Philadelphia Phillies since May 27, helping lead the team to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday night.

Halladay pitched five innings, allowing two runs while striking out six.

“I feel good and I feel like I can contribute. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have tried to pitch tonight,” Halladay said.

The 35-year-old right-hander was sent to the disabled list after his start in May due to soreness in his pitching shoulder.

Halladay made only one rehab appearance with Clearwater before taking the mound Tuesday.

The two-time CY Young winner has a 3.96 ERA with four wins and a 1.14 WHIP for the season.
