Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - A presumed pitchers' duel between Phillies
ace Roy Halladay and Marlins counterpart Josh Johnson never materialized as
Philadelphia's bats awoke in a 7-1 win Wednesday night.
Halladay (2-0) tossed his obligatory seven innings, limiting the Marlins to
Johnson (0-2), meanwhile, surrendered six runs on a career-high 11 hits in 3
2/3 innings, and suffered his first loss in seven games (six starts) at
Citizens Bank Park.
Philadelphia produced five of those runs in a third inning punctuated by
rookie second baseman Freddy Galvis' two-run double.
The offensive surge was a welcome sight for the Phillies after they had
totaled just eight runs in dropping three of their first four games, including
