Two more strikeouts for Halladay as Brandon Phillips and Orlando Cabrera went down looking and swinging. Joey Votto grounded out to Jimmy Rollins to end the inning, bringing Roy’s pitch count to an adorable 43 pitches through for innings, only 8 of which were balls. His change-up (and really everything else about him) is looking gooooooood. Move along people, nothing to see here.
After Roy flied out to right, Jimmy hit it to the deepest part of the ballpark, flying out to Drew Stubbs on the warning track. Shane Victorino popped out to end the inning, his first out of the ballgame. Travis Wood has stopped the bleeding for the Reds, tossing 2.1 scoreless innings of relief thus far.
Still 4-0 Phils.
