St. Louis Cardinals (61-51) at Philadelphia Phillies (50-61) Kyle Lohse (12-2, 2.79) vs. Roy Halladay (5-6, 4.02) Time: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park Weather: Scattered thunderstorms, 84 TV: CSN Media: Twitter and Facebook Mike Lieberthal will be inducted into the Phillies’ Wall of Fame tonight.  During his 13 years in Philadelphia (1994-2006), Lieberthal batted .275 with 150 home runs.  In 1999, Lieberthal had his best season (.300 AVG, 31 HR, .914 OPS), making the All Star team and winning a Gold Glove Award.  It’s hard to believe that six years have passed, but a lot has changed throughout that time period.  The Phillies went from experiencing glory to looking a lot like that 1999 that Lieberthal was on. Roy Halladay said shutting him down for the season isn’t going to do any good; he claims that he needs to pitch.  He’ll pitch tonight as he is coming off one of his best starts of the season.  Halladay will be opposed by Lohse, who has one of the best winning percentages in the leagu...

Roy Halladay Masterful; Chase Utley Provides Offensive Late
