Worth noting

• The Padres are the first team to beat Roy Halladay twice in the same season since the Rays did it four times and the Red Sox twice in 2009.

• Rich Dubee said reliever Chad Qualls has corrected a mechanical problem accounted for the veteran right-hander being hit hard in four straight appearances. He's thrown two scoreless innings since.

"We looked at some of his old stuff earlier in the year [on video]. And he was more upright when he came set. And he just thought he was losing his angling and flattening out. It's something he's done in the past that's a key for him. I thought he threw really well [Friday] night," the pitching coach said.

• It's only the middle of May, but the Phillies have already suited up 35 different players this season.
