Another Great Halladay
I got in from the barn to see that the Jays were down 2-0 after Doc had given up a 2-run dinger to Nick Markakis in the 1st inning. The home run by Markakis caused me mixed emotions---the kind you get when one of your fantasy team players is facing your favorite team, and Markakis is a mainstay for my fantasy teams---I have him on 3 of my 4 teams. Anyway, Roy fought through the 1st and ended up having one of his typical games 8 innings 10 hits 4R 3ER 1BB 6K and the 8-4 win. Halladay cruised through innings 2 to 7, the 8th took 27 pitches and a visit from Cito, but Doc hunkered down and got Ty Wiggington to ground to Scutaro for a fielders choice and the 3rd out of the inning. Doc gave up 2 runs in that 8th inning leaving with a 6-4 lead. The offense added 2 more in the bottom of the 8th, making it 8-4 and Scott Downs closed out the non-save situation to preserve the win, a 16-9 record and first place in the AL EAST. Oh and Roy is now 5-1 on the year. This has been another installment of If every day was a Halladay.
