Halladay to Start All-Star Game

Doc gets the ball on Tuesday

Phillies ace Roy Halladay has officially been named the starting pitcher for the National League team in Tuesday’s All-Star game. Halladay leads the National League in innings pitched and is 11-3 with a 2.45 ERA. Fellow Phillie Cliff Lee is also likely to pitch in Tuesday’s game. The National League team and—fingers crossed—the Phils hope to win Tuesday to secure home field advantage in the World Series. [Crossing Broad]
