After Phil Hughes had a tough time with the Rangers in the early going, Roy Halladay had no trouble disposing of the Giants top three hitters. An Andres Torres first-pitch line out, Freddy Sanchez fly out, and Aubrey Huff ground out and the Phillies are up to bat.
Minor surprise, Mike Fontenot will be starting at third base, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Pablo Sandoval comes in around the sixth inning once they need a power bat. Jimmy Rollins settles into the six hole with Raul Ibanez behind him. Shane steps up to face Tim Lincecum momentarily.
Roy Halladay hasn’t allowed a run since the seventh inning against the Braves on September 21st.
