San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Roy Halladay got over a shaky first
inning, eventually tossing eight strong frames allowing two runs on seven hits
with six strikeouts, and Philadelphia defeated San Francisco, 5-2, in the
opener of a three-game set on Monday.
Lance Nix hit a two-run double and Halladay (3-0) helped his own cause with an
RBI single. Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence also drove in runs in the
victory, the Phillies' second straight as they open a 10-game West Coast road
Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth to record his third save.
In what was billed as a pitching duel, Tim Lincecum (0-2) was touched for five
runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings. He struck out six and drove in
a run with his bat, while Aubrey Huff picked up the other RBI for the Giants,
who have dropped two straight.
