After pitching only twice in like 20+ days due to rainouts and scheduled days off, I wasn't sure what to expect from Roy Halliday - and I'm not sure even he was.
Although rusty at first - he had another great game. But this game was a little different. Nothing you would hear about on the local news outside of Philly - it wasn't another perfect game, or even a no-hitter. This time he threw a decent game - pitching 7 innings and just giving up 2 hits, no runs, but he did walk a couple guys and even hit a guy - but his bat came alive!
Roy doesn't know how to do things like a normal person - even a normal MLB player. He happened to hit just his second extra base hit ever (which is also the second this season) and get the first RBIs of the season off the hit. Oh - did I mention the bases were loaded, so he had a 3-RBI double. He definitely was the player of the game!

In case you live in a hole, Michael Vick just signed a 6-year, $100 million dollar deal with the Eagles. I know many people are not a fan of him because of what he did, and by no means do I condone it, but he served his time in jail, and has worked to prove himself good by others not just as a professional football player, but as a human being. I will save this topic for another blog post - cause otherwise, this could go forever...
