Halladay is leading the Phillies into the first month of the season
The game was in Roy Halladay’s hands on Wednesday night, the game time of tonight’s game was only one minute less than last night at 2 hours and 28 minutes, but this time the Phillies ended up on the winning side by a score of 2-0.
The old cliche of ‘ace’ being tagged on Halladay now doesn’t seem like it is enough for him. Every five days Doc Halladay goes out there and gives the Phillies their best chance to win a ballgame. The defense came to the aid of Halladay tonight, without Shane Victorino’s great catch in center off of Troy Glaus, the game might have been different for both the Phils and Halladay.
Roy’s feat of going 4-0 and a .082 in the first four games in a Phillies uniform may seem superhuman and indeed it is, however, Cliff Lee did the exact same numbers for the Phillies last year according to a tweet by Todd Zolecki, sports writer that covers the Phils for the MLB.
One may wonder if we may have the Cy Young Award winner on our team this year as Halladay is well on his way to be in the running for such an award. The season is a long one though, and I’m sure we’ll see some great pitching from a lot of the top pitchers around the league.
Doc’s next game should be in San Francisco on Monday, April 26th. His opponent should be Todd Wellemeyer for the Giants. The Phillies will probably face Tim Lincecum on Wednesday in San Francisco for a 3:45PM game local Philadelphia time on the 28th of April.
