Wolf outduels Halladay 9-0

The Brewers handed the Phillies their first series loss last night in an ugly 9-0 blowout.

Former Phil Randy Wolf silenced a Phillies lineup that has been scuffling of late, while Roy Halladay struggled for the first time this season.

Halladay uncharacteristically struggled with his command all night, throwing 73 strikes on 112 pitches. He only walked two, but worked into deep counts during his 6.2 innings. Halladay surrendered six runs on ten hits. David Herndon relieved Halladay in the sixth and immediately allowed a three-run bomb to Casey McGehee.

Meanwhile, the Phillies managed just two hits against Wolf, who struck out five and walked three in his six strong innings. Wolf managed to pitch a great game despite the lack of the Wolf Pack supporting him from the right field upper deck.

The Phillies will look to salvage a game in the series with Cliff Lee on the hill this afternoon and avoid their first sweep of the season.
