Game 49 - Toronto game 9

As always all stats are from the Day by Day database at Baseball Musings.

Roy Halladay vs Matt Clement tonight. Halladay is 6 and 1 this year with a 2.77 ERA in 9 games. His last win was the 23rd against Tampa Bay, pitching 8 2/3 innings and allowing only 1 Earned Run. In his career at home against the Sox (as a starter), Halladay is 5 and 2 with a 3.42 ERA in 11 starts. He has also appeared in 3 games as a reliever at home pitching 5 1/3 innings with an 18.56 ERA. Total stats home and away has Halladay appearing in 25 games, 1 complete game, 8 wins, 6 losses, 119 K's, 41 Walks and a 4.49 ERA.

Clement (who I think I will call DHL for deer in head lights) has made 3 starts against the Blue Jays in Toronto (all with the Sox). His record in those games are 1 and 1 (the win this year) with a 5.71 ERA in those 3 games. His shortest outing was the win this year when he went 5 1/3 innings allowing 2 earned runs. In 7 games total against the Jays he is 2 and 3 (both wins this year) with a 7.34 ERA. preview is here. preview is here.
Press Release found here.

I fully expect DHL to stink up the place. He is the most aggravating of all of the Boston starters. In 9 starts this year he has had 3 quality starts. The team record is 5 and 4 (only Wakefield has worst at 5 and 6), due to the fact that the bats pound out 5.90 runs per game. Well, with Halladay pitching I do not expect 5.9 runs tonight. I hate to say it but I fully expect this game to be a big L (making the Sox 3 and 6 vs the Jays this year).
