Phillies Vs. Nationals, Game 2: Philly Turns To Roy Halladay To End Losing Streak

Usually when the Philadelphia Phillies find themselves in a tough spot, ace Roy Halladay is usually comes to the rescue. "Doc" Halladay will need to do it again Tuesday, when the Phillies host the Washington Nationals in Game 2 of a three-game set at Citizen Bank Park (7:05 p.m. ET on Comcast Sports Network).

Halladay (4-3, 3.22 ERA) will be called upon to end a four-game losing streak and get the Phils' (21-22) back to the .500 mark. To do that, Halladay will need to out-pitch Washington starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann (2-4, 2.48 ERA), and hope his offense, which scored a run in a 2-1 loss Monday, supports his effort.
