Father’s Day Failure
June 20, 2010

On a day celebrating fathers around the world, the Phillies were the only ones not celebrating. Roy Halladay was taken yard two times and Carl Pavano pitched a complete game to lead the Twins to a 4-1 win and series win in Philadelphia.
Halladay got hit pretty well but only allowed four runs, three earned on 11 hits while striking out eight in eight innings. Pavano only allowed a run on four hits, the lone mistake being a solo homer given up to Wilson Valdez, his second of the season.
Denard Span and Justin Morneau each homered for the Twins. Both also had two-hit games along with Jason Kubel.
The Phillies will have the day off on Monday before hosting the last-place Cleveland Indians for a three-game series. The Phils sit 5.5 games out of first currently.
HR: Valdez (2).
WP: Pavano (8-6). LP: Halladay (8-6).
