Phillies Vs Nationals: Roy Halladay Looks To Continue Dominance Over Washington

The matchup between Roy Halladay and the Washington Nationals franchise has proved to be downright unfair. In his career against the Nationals and their previous iteration, the Expos, Halladay is 10-1 with a 2.01 ERA over 13 starts. Since joining the Phils, he's 5-0 against Washington, with two wins coming this year. The reigning NL Cy Young award winner takes the hill this afternoon in the first of a three game series at Nationals Park.

He will be opposed by Livan Hernandez, who is 1-1 against the Phils this year. In 13 innings he's given up 17 hits and five runs to the Phils, but was strong in his last outing on April 12th. He gave up just one run over 6 2/3 innings. The righty has lost five of his last seven decisions however.

The Phils have beaten the Nats in five of six meetings this season. Washington trails the Phillies in the NL East by 10.5 games.
