Houston scored just one run off reigning Cy Young winner Roy Halladay, but managed to work his pitch count and get him out of today’s game after six innings before tacking on three runs against the Phillies’ bullpen.
With a 4-2 lead entering the ninth inning they called on Brandon Lyon to close out the unlikely win … and he promptly recorded just one out while allowing six singles on an assortment of high-80s meatballs, including John Mayberry Jr.’s walk-off “single” over center fielder Michael Bourn‘s head.
Halladay was taken off the hook for what would’ve been a tough loss, Brett Myers got merely a no-decision despite seven strong innings, and after eight innings of confusion order has been restored to the National League hierarchy.
