Roy Halladay dominated for eight innings and allowed only two hits while the Phillies won in exciting fashion thanks to a longgggg eighth inning homerun from Chase Utley and Papelbon did his dancing bear highwire routine for the save. Roy is back to being Roy, everyone, just like we knew he would be.
Here's the line, donkeys:
8 ip, 2 hits, 1 earned run, 8 strikeouts, zero fargling walks. Is there any doubt that Roy will now probably finish the season with a however-many-starts-he-has-left complete game shutout streak? Nope.
Perhaps more importantly though, we developed a new catchphrase:
|99 pitches but a something something blah blah unh hit me|

Also, it was pretty great when the Cardinals didn't have any other hits off of Roy after Mayor Burnsy's foolish tweet below and then I threw it back in his face after Roy threw 8 one-run innings, and then LOLOLOL--best of all!--Carlos Beltran went and LOLOLOLOL got picked off by the old "fake to throw to third throw back to first move" that literally no one in the history of baseball has ever been fooled by in order to make the third out in the ninth and seal the Phillies victory. LOL what a space cadet. Thanks, Burnsy!
