Pitching matchup: RHP Roy Halladay (6-3, 2.21) vs. LHP Travis Wood (3-3, 5.17)
HALLADAY vs. REDS: All Halladay did the last time he faced the Reds was throw a no-hitter in the first game of the National League Division Series, holding the Reds to one walk in nine innings of a 4-0 Phillies victory. In fact, the Reds have not scored on him in 18 consecutive innings. He held them to five hits and one walk in nine innings of an 11-inning, 1-0 win at Citizens Bank Park on July 10.
WOOD vs. PHILLIES: The Phillies have yet to solve Wood. He held them scoreless for 3 innings in Game 1 of the NLDS, appearing in long relief after starter Edinson Volquez was knocked out in the second inning. In his only game against them during the regular season, he actually outdueled Halladay in that July 10 meeting, allowing just one hit in nine innings but winding up with a no-decision.
FYI: The Phillies are 22-0 when leading after seven innings.
