“They wanted to try to get me in the game and keep it short,” Halladay said. “As a starter you want to keep yourself rested for the second half, so for me it was win-win.”
If the Phils are fortunate enough to get to the World Series, it will be win-win-win for Halladay because of the home-field advantage that the NL earned with the win.
“You never want to be on the wrong side of a streak like that,” said Halladay, referring to the NL’s 13-year winless streak. “It’s nice to be able to end it. In the dugout, after the last out, guys were really excited.”
