When Roy Halladay has a rough start, there is a good chance he will rebound in his next outing. Halladay bounced back from a tough game against the San Francisco Giants by tossing a complete game shutout over the New York Mets.
While Halladay dazzled and struck out six, the offense finally came back to life. The Phillies threw up a six spot on the scoreboard in the fourth inning. Jayson Werth opened the scoring with a RBI single on a pop-up over the second baseman. Juan Castro’s two-run double extended the Phillies lead to three. Shane Victorino broke the game wide open with a three-run home run. The runs would not stop there as Raul Ibanez chipped in with a two-run triple.
The Phillies were able to halt the Mets’ eight game winning streak with their 10-0 victory. The offense finally clicked, but it was Halladay who stole the show with his second complete game shutout as a Phillie. Johan Santana and Jamie Moyer face off tonight in the series rubber-match.
