Roy Halladay got off to a somewhat shaky start. He allowed two hits and a walk in the first but got out of a bases loaded jam unscathed. Omar Infante lead off the second inning with a double off the left field wall that would have left the park had there not been a stiff wind blowing in from left field. Infante would come around to score to give the Marlins a 1-0 in the second. Halladay settled in and allowed just two more hits over the course of the next five innings. He ended up tossing seven innings allowing just five hits and one earned run. He exited with a six run lead and would get his second win of the year in as many starts.
Some other areas to note: Hunter Pence went 3-for-4, drove in a run, and scored a run. Shane Victorino stole two bases to give him four stolen bases on the year. He only attempted seven stolen bases after the All-Star Break last year. Juan Pierre got his first steal as a Phillie despite the fact that in the ballpark and on replay it appeared that he was out.
The Phillies look to win the series tonight as Joe Blanton makes his first start of the year while the Marlins will counter with Mark Buehrle. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm at Citizens Bank Park.
