PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies have already played ten games this season and so far they’ve won as many as they’ve lost.  Charlie Manuel’s squad sits at 5-5 and they head into tonight’s game in San Francisco 2 1/2 games behind the first place Washington Nationals in the NL East.

As expected, it has been a struggle for the Phils at the plate, although they have shown some signs of life lately, scoring 13 runs in the last two games combined – both wins.

The starting pitching has been about what everyone expected with Roy Halladay leading the way.  After his 8 inning performance in last night’s 5-2 win in San Francisco – Halladay sits at 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA in three starts.

KYW’s Matt Leon and baseball insider Seth Everett talk about the Phillies here in the early season and they also touch on some other key topics from around the league like the alarming lack of life on Tim Lincecum’s fastball and the surprising early season success of those New York Mets.
