In Monday night's game, Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum opposed each other in what can only be described as a classic pitcher's duel. One help up his end of the bargain, the other did not.
Halladay was masterful in the Philadelphia Philies 5-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Doc pitched eight innings, scattering seven hits while allowing only two runs and striking out six.
Lincecum on the other hand continues to struggle. In his six innings the skinny right-hander gave up five runs, all earned. He's still in search of his first win of the campaign and we're halfway through April.
Halladay showcased beautiful command, throwing first pitch strikes to 25 of the 34 batters he faced. In a tough start to the season for Philadelphia, Halladay has been one of the bright spots. So far, he's compiled a 3-0 record and a 1.17 ERA.
