Doc Halladay, y’all.

  • Roy looked like the ace that he is tonight. Poor Brewers couldn’t see a thing! Unfortunately he had a little trouble finding his spots in the later innings so his pitch count ran a bit high. Still, 8 full innings after Hamels’ complete game yesterday means our bullpen is still as deadly as ever.
  • His final line: 8 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 9 SO
  • The first 6 innings of this game weren’t too exciting, besides Howard’s 3 run shot in the top of the 1st. 
  • Pete Orr went 3 for 3 tonight. Oh, and he disrupted the sausage race and got nailed by an italian sausage. No bullshit. Here’s the video.
  • Madson allowed some runs in the bottom of the 9th, mostly due to the fact that Bastardo allowed runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs.

Below are the inning by inning highlights!

Top 1:

  • Shane Victorino hits a leadoff single.
  • Hunter Pence singles with 2 outs, Victorino to third. 
  • The Big Piece goes yard! A massive upper deck home run by Howard scores Pence and Victorino.
  • Phillies 3, Brewers 0

Top 7:

  • Placido Polanco doubles
  • Ryan Howard intentionally walked
  • Rauuuuuul smacks a single! Polanco scores and Howard heads to second.
  • Phillies 4, Brewers 0
  • Pete Orr singles, Raul moves to second, Howard to third.
  • Choooooch singles and scores Howard!
  • Phillies 5, Brewers 0

Bottom 7:

  • McGehee scores on a sac fly by Yulensky Betancourt (such a cool name…)

Bottom 9:

  • Jerry Hairston grounds out to Polanco, Fielder to 3rd and McGehee to 2nd.
