After 5 1/2 innings, the Phillies remain ahead of the Reds 4-0, with Roy Halladay having thrown five hitless innings.
Positively cruising, Halladay threw just 10 balls to 14 hitters before walking Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth and giving the Reds their first baserunner. Here’s the inning-by-inning breakdown:
1st – 10 pitches, 7 strikes, 3 balls
2nd – 12 pitches, 10 strikes, 2 balls
3rd – 9 pitches, 8 strikes, 1 ball
4th – 12 pitches, 10 strikes, 2 balls
5th – 18 pitches, 11 strikes, 7 balls
At 61 pitches through five innings, Halladay is definitely in position to go the distance. The Reds probably won’t let him face another pitcher tonight, but with Jim Edmonds out of the mix, their bench is far from scary.

    Doc also got a two-out RBI single in the second, on the first postseason pitch he ever saw. Oh, and he scored from second on a bases loaded single by Shane Victorino, the Phightins’ resident Hawaiian. Phils radio guy Scott Franzke led off the seventh saying Halladay has more hits than the Reds.

    And make that hitless through 7. MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Anyone who thinks the Reds have a chance to win more than a game in this series, please see me at the blue bridge. I can sell it to you very cheap. After two losses, the price will go up!

    As a Jays fan, I am not surprised at Doc’s performance on the mound. I am totally surprised by his hitting prowess.

    DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!! No-hitter through eight with just a walk away from perfection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Reds pen have overcome the less than stellar beginning by Volquez, so there’s that.
