Phillies-Giants Game Thread 4/16/2012


East coast fans, get ready for a week of late bedtimes. The Phillies (4-5) begin their first real road trip of the season, with stops in San Francisco, San Diego, and then Arizona. The offense, currently averaging 3.11 runs per game, will have its work cut out for it in the cavernous expanses of AT&T Park and PETCO Park. To open the series versus the Giants (4-5), the Phillies will send Roy Halladay (2.71 xFIP in 2011) to the bump to match up against Tim Lincecum (3.36). Halladay enters his third start having allowed only 1 run over 15 innings pitched. Though Lincecum has struck out 10 batters in just 7 and 2/3rds innings, he was stung by the long ball in Arizona, and was smacked around to the tune of 5 line drives in Colorado, chased early from both games.
