Phillies Beat Giants 4-2, Series Comes Back To Philadelphia

Roy Halladay didn't have his greatest stuff, but he was just good enough to beat Tim Lincecum as the Philadelphia Phillies took Game 5 from the San Francisco Giants and sent the series back to Philadelphia.

The Phillies big inning came in the third when a big error from Aubrey Huff allowed two Phillies runs across. Three runs would score in the inning and the Phillies took a lead that they wouldn't surrender. Jayson Werth would tack on an insurance run with a huge shot to right field in the top of the ninth.

Roy Halladay may not have had his usual dominant stuff, but he turned a nice start by any mortal standards going 6 innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five. That said, the Phillies bullpen may well have been the hero tonight going 3 innings allowing no runs, just one hit and five strikeouts. Brad Lidge closed the game with a 1-2-3 ninth.

The series now shifts back to Philadelphia with the Giants up 3-2. Roy Oswalt faces Jonathan Sanchez in game 6, Oswalt was dominant in game two going eight innings, giving up just a run and striking out nine.
