Thanks to a huge boot by Aubrey Huff and some gutty pitching by Roy Halladay, the Phils took a 4-2 decision from San Francisco to maintain a pulse in the NLCS. The defending league champs are down 3-2 in the best of seven series.
Halladay, pitching with a funky groin in a steady Bay drizzle, outlasted Tim Lincecum, who gave up three runs in the third frame, two on a hard-hit ball that careemed off of Huff's glove. It was enough.
It was thew second time that Cy Young winners Halladay and Lincecum matched up; they've each won a game.
Philadelphia's win forced a Game 6 back home in Citizens Bank Park on Saturday, with Roy Oswalt scheduled against Jonathan Sanchez.
