Roy Halladay scattered two hits over four innings, striking out two in four innings of work as the Phillies beat the Nats 6-3.
During the game, Todd Zolecki reported that Delmon Young is aiming for a mid-April return. Zolecki insinuated that Dom Brown is likely to start the year as the team’s right fielder and then move to left once Young is ready to return.
Obviously, this begins with Doc. Doc absolutely handcuffed the Nats today. Brown had two more hits and Tommy Joseph went 3 for 4, raising his average to .462. Antonio Bastardo, Justin De Fratus, and Jake Diekman combined for three scoreless innings, scattering two hits and striking out five.
Areas of Opportunity
Chad Durbin was really the only Phil to struggle today. Durbin gave up three earned in one inning of work.
