Halladay strong in debut, pitching set through the 6th

Roy Halladay started against his former team, the Toronto Blue Jays this afternoon. He pitched two strong innings, allowing no runs, two hits, one walk and one strikeout. He departed the game with a 3-0 lead, thanks mostly to a Carlos Ruiz two-run double.

The pitching schedule is set until Sunday. Here it is:

Tuesday vs. Tigers: Cliff Lee, Kyle Kendrick, Eddie Bonine, Dan Meyer, Danys Baez and Mike Zagurski.

Wednesday vs. Orioles: Roy Oswalt, Vance Worley, Brian Bass, Justin De Fratus, David Herndon and Brad Lidge.

Wednesday vs Blue Jays "B Game": Drew Naylor, Ryan Feierabend, Jose Contreras, Ryan Madson and J.C Romero.

Thursday @ Red Sox: Cole Hamels, Scott Mathieson, Brian Schlitter, Michael Stutes, Juan Perez and Michael Schwimer.

Friday @ Pirates: Joe Blanton, Baez, Meyer, Andrew Carpenter, Zagurski and Antonio Bastardo.

Saturday vs Pirates: Halladay, J.C. Ramirez, Madson, Contreras and Lidge.

Sunday @ Tigers: Kendrick, Herndon, Stutes, Perez, Schlitter and Schwimer.

Sunday vs. Rays: Lee, Bonine, Romero, Mathieson and De Fratus.

Hamels has the toughest assignments thus far, making his first two starts against the Yankees and the Red Sox on the road, meaning Boston will likely field their regular lineup as New York did on Saturday.
