PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Tonight, for the first time since May 27th, right-hander Roy Halladay will take the mound for the Phillies as they look for a fourth-straight win in the middle game of a three game series in Los Angeles.

Halladay has been out with a strained lat muscle.  Prior to being shelved, he was 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA.  In that last appearance in May, he lasted just two innings against the Cardinals.

In his career, the man known as “Doc” has thrown the ball well against Los Angeles.  In five career starts against the Dodgers, Halladay is 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA.

The Phillies are on a three game winning streak after last night’s 3-2 win in the series opener against LA.  That was the Phils first win in five tries this season against Los Angeles and the three game streak is their longest since they won four straight from May 23rd-26th.  Coincidently, that win streak was snapped the next day in Halladay last appearance before the DL.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Phillies broadcaster Chris Wheeler about the Phils better play as of late and what to look for out of Halladay tonight.
