Doc’s a Robot and the Phillies Open Up With Win

Roy Halladay gave up two hits in the bottom of the first before retiring 24 straight batters over eight innings pitched. Carlos Ruiz had three hits, John Mayberry Jr. added two knocks, and Chooch drove in Philly’s only run with a sacrifice fly to right field. Papelbon closed it out without a problem. It’s a great day to be alive, you guys. [Phillies]
