Happ shuts out Houston, offense rolling

It wasn't always sexy, but J.A. Happ proved last night once again, that he is one of the best pitchers on this staff.

Happ was effectively wild at times, but he kept Houston's lineup off balance, scattering five hits and two walks over five scoreless innings while striking out five. He's even allowed less runs than Roy Halladay this season, which should be rather short lived.

The offense continued to roll, a rarity for this time of year. Placido Polanco continues to showcase all of his tremendous talents as a true baseball player. He's hitting .579 and his presence in the lineup should continue to help Jimmy Rollins, who is also off to an outstanding start.

Jamie Moyer takes the hill in Houston tonight, looking to translate his strong spring into a productive regular season outing.
