What a huge win for the Fightin’ Phils on Friday night. They have to continue the momentum all weekend long.
This hasn’t been Roy Halladay’s best season, struggling with injuries and consistency for most of the season. Regardless of his performance this year, it’s always good to have a guy like Doc pitch in a big game like this. Even with his struggles, Phillies fans still have faith in Roy Halladay.
Ryan Howard has a reputation for being Mr. September, but he hasn’t quite lived up to that name this year. But could he slowly be starting to heat up? The Big Piece has 3 home runs in as many games.

The Philadelphia Phillies have a chance Thursday to start a pitcher with 198 career wins, two Cy Young Awards and $20 million in annual salary against the Washington Nationals. Yet for reasons physical, precautionary and a little fuzzy, they are resisting committing one more start this season to Roy Halladay. Halladay, 35, labored through 1 2/3 innings Saturday, surrendering...
A blog by Phillies beat writer Ryan Lawrence of the Daily News suggests that Roy Halladay could be done for the season.
This is pure speculation by Lawrence, but he takes a moment to muse about that the media notes given to him. The starter for Thursday, which would have otherwise been Roy Halladay's next start is now listed as "TBA".
Now, the Phillies could...
Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher Roy Halladay celebrates his Perfect Game against the Florida Marlins
Two significant things happened yesterday in the Phillies deflating 8-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves. One was watching Ryan Howard become the second fastest player in MLB history to 300 home runs. Howard achieved the feat in 6 more games than Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner. It was also Ryan...
The Phillies continued their offensive outbreak in last night's series opener against Atlanta. Four Phillies homered last night to push to a 6-2 win. With last night's win, the Phillies three games behind in the Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot. Kyle Kendrick was yet again spectacular, earning his tenth win of the season. This afternoon, Roy Halladay (10-7, 4.03...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer to back Mike Minor and the Atlanta Braves roughed up Roy Halladay to move closer to clinching a postseason berth with an 8-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
The win coupled with Milwaukee's 10-4 loss to Washington reduced Atlanta's magic number for securing a playoff spot to three. The Braves...
Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay who got rocked by the Atlanta Braves on Saturday and is suffering from back spasms is still scheduled to start this Thursday. The Doc visited the doctor and all seems to be okay so with that the team doesn’t plan on shutting him down.
Amaro, the Phillies’ GM, said all examinations of Halladay’s shoulder and back have “seemed OK.”...

The Phillies have put themselves into a position in the second wildcard race where a series like this is a must-win. In fact, the next 11 games are all must-wins. They hoped Roy Halladay could help them continue their winning streak, but it wouldn't be that simple.
In the top of the first inning, Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones scored on a three-run home run off the bat...
Watching the early blowup and early departure of Phillies ace Roy Halladay evoked a haunting memory from 2007. In fact, the stats are eerily similar to June 9, 2007. Although he only got five outs, the starting pitcher for the Phillies that day gave up six earned runs, and Charlie Manuel went out to get him and called to the bullpen. Minutes later, Manuel followed Freddy...
The 2010 Reds stood little chance of beating the Phillies in the Division Series. The Phillies' rotation was simply too good.
Roy Halladay threw a no-hitter in Game 1. The Reds made four errors and hit three batters in Game 2. Cole Hamels threw a five-hit shutout in Game 3 - and just like that, the team with the highest-scoring offense in the National League was eliminated....
Mike Minor will look to keep the good times rolling vs Doc Halladay on Saturday
There are three things that can be counted on in the final month of the Braves season. First, Chipper Jones is going to receive rousing ovations everywhere he goes. Second, this team will be streaky. And, Kris Medlen will dominate.
These certainties do not mean that others won’t step up. As we saw in...
