Phillies Vs Giants NLCS Game 5: Phillies Up 3-2 After Seven

Roy Halladay hasn’t had his best stuff tonight, but he’s battled through as the Philadelphia Phillies continue to hold a 3-2 edge over the San Francisco Giants after six innings.

The Giants cut the Phillies lead to just a run after guess who… Cody Ross doubled in a run the bottom of the fourth. Halladay got himself out of jam in the bottom of the 6th after allowing a leadoff walk to Buster Posey. He got Pat Burrell to pop up and struck out Cody Ross for the next two outs, but Pablo Sandoval singled to put Posey in scoring position. Halladay struck out Juan Uribe to end the threat.

Roy Halladay’s pitch count is at 108 and Ross Gload is in the on deck circle in the top of the 7th, so it appears that his night may be over if Gload gets to the plate. Update - Gload lined out to first for a double play to end the 7th.
