CHICAGO (AP) – Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena homered to back a dominant start by Rodrigo Lopez, and the Chicago Cubs beat Philadelphia 6-1 Monday on a night when Phillies ace Roy Halladay left the game because of the heat.

 

Halladay doubled over and was visited by a trainer after Starlin Castro led off the fifth inning with a single. Drew Carpenter came in to replace him.

 

Halladay was drenched in sweat on a humid night in which the game-time temperature was 91. The heat clearly affected him.

 

He gave up three runs and seven hits and took his first loss since May 15. Halladay had his first outing since starting for the National League in last week’s All-Star game and pitching two perfect innings.
