2011 Topps Lineage Giants #TG6 Roy Halladay

Phillies 9, Marlins 5
Game 158 - Saturday Night, September 29th in Miami
Record - 79-79, 3rd Place, 17 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Roy Halladay wrapped up a disappointing 2012 campaign with a win against the Marlins.

What It Means:  The Phillies are back at .500 and with four games remaining, they need to go 3-1 to finish with a winning record.

What Went Right:  Halladay allowed four runs on six hits in his five innings of work while striking out seven.  Jimmy Rollins went 3 for 4 and scored his 100th run of the season, making it the sixth time in his career he had crossed the century mark in runs.

Featured Card:  Doc finished the season with an 11-8 mark, and he heads into the offseason prepared to work on turning things around in 2013.  This is one of my favorite Halladay cards from 2011 - a card modelled off the 1964 Topps Giants set.  I thought the card would be appropriate for this post as Halladay rode into the sunset for the winter.
