Doc and Chooch Celebrate Division Title

This is why he came to Philly.  Last night, Roy Halladay dismissed all the recent chatter about how he might be tired or fatigued from pitching so many innings this season.  Halladay effortlessly threw a complete game, two-hit shutout to clinch the National League East Division Crown for the Phillies.

Dominating from start to finish, he struck out six and walked none.  He faced only one batter more (28) than the minimum, and needed only 98 pitches as the Phils crushed the Nationals, 8-0.  It is Halladay’s 21st win of the year, and the Phils fourth consecutive division title.

Offensively, the bats awakened from a two game slumber.  Jayson Werth resumed his hot hitting, going 3 for 5 with a HR (his 26th) and 4 RBIs.  Placido Polanco went 3 for 4 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.

With the win, the Fightins secured home field advantage through the playoffs (Yeah!), and  they are 20-5 in September (wow!).  Talk about finishing strong!
