Roy Halladay pitching in his first Spring Training game vs. the Yankees on March 4th, will Halladay be the first Phillies pitcher to win 20 games since Steve Carlton?
To the relief of many, Roy Halladay went to the mound today and pitched lights out in his first appearance in a Phillies uniform. Like a painter, Halladay painted corners and dropped sinkers in to the strike zone and baffled Yankees batters in his first outing.
The game was won in dramatic fashion 3-2 in Spring Training game 1 against the Yankees, that's good too, but it's not something to start raving about. It's a long spring training season and when clubs like the Pirates beat you, you start to wonder what's going on. It's great to win the first time out though and a huge crowd of nearly 10,000 people took the game in.
Here's the numbers line on Halladay's first two innings as a Phillies pitcher:
- 2 IP
- 3 SO
- 0 H
- 0 R
The weekend schedule:
- Friday 1:05 pm - Phillies vs. @Toronto
