Before the Phillies sudden three-game winning streak, the team had been in a downward spiral ever since the ace of their staff went down with a shoulder injury. Tonight, Phillies Nation hopes the return of Roy Halladay helps the Fightins continue their attempt to find their missing swag.
Yes, finally, the Doc has come back to Los Angeles!
The Phils have gone 15-27 without Doc, 12-27 before winning the last three games. They were 25-24 when he went on the DL. One can only hope Doc’s return gives the team the confidence that the returns of Utley and Howard were supposed to give the lineup.
Of course, Halladay will need to regain his old form. The last eight games before landing on the DL, he was a Cliff Leeesque 1-5 as his ERA shot from 1.17 to 3.98.
In his lone rehan start, Doc went three strong innings, giving up one run on three hits. He tossed 61 pitches in the game.
To make room for Doc, Brian Sanches was outrighted to Lehigh Valley.
