The Human Torch: It's My Turn, Roy!

Last night, Mr. Fantastic Roy Halladay pitched a complete game allowing only 6 hits and 2 runs as the Philadelphia Phillies edged the Washington Nationals, 3-2. The complete game win by Halladay came after a bad outing by Joe Blanton who lost 7-4 the night before. The Phillies are now 3 for 3 in the "great outing after a bad outing" category as they refuse to lose two games in a row.

And so tonight Halladay handed the stage over to the Human Torch Cliff Lee.

And what did Lee do? Oh, he pitched a complete game, 3-hit shutout, striking out 12 and walking only one batter as the Phillies again beat the National, 4-0. With the back-to-back complete game wins the Phillies are now 9-3 and looking unstoppable. It seems like the Fab Four are beginning to feed off each other and trying to out-due each other. Uh oh!

If that's the case then this thing is going to be fun to watch as the Phillies have now won all 4 series they've played this season and are yet to lose 2 games in a row. Very impressive!

Did someone say 120 wins for the Phillies?

Whoa! Getting 120 wins is a near impossibility but based on the early going I'm beginning to think-- maybe it's not that far-fetched for these Phillies after all. We'll see....
