Padres Vs. Phillies Preview: Roy Halladay Looking For First Win Since April 16

The Philadelphia Phillies will look to put back-to-back wins together, and finally get ace pitcher Roy Halladay some run support for him to pick up his first win in nearly a month as he faces off against the San Diego Padres Saturday night.

The Phillies offense has scored three or less runs in four of Halladay's seven starts. Padres starter Edinson Volquez has also suffered from a lack of offense in his starts, as San Diego has scored more than three runs in only one of his starts in 2012.

Philadelphia showed signs of breaking out of their funk by taking the first game of the series Friday night, 7-3 behind a strong pitching performance by Vance Worley and timely offense. The Phillies will look to continue to keep the bats hot Saturday night against Volquez in order to help Halladay break his longest winless streak since joining the Phillies.

First pitch at Citizens Bank Park is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. It will be televised locally on CSN.
