Although it’s hard to believe at times, the Phillies' pitching staff consists of more than just Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels.
A combined 29 wins, 2.59 ERA, 369 strikeouts, 11 complete games and an opponent batting average of .228 is enough to give the Phillies three of the game’s best pitchers through the first half of the season.
However, the success of the Phillies’ pitching staff is being enjoyed by more than just these three pitchers. With injuries to five members of the team’s bullpen, a fair share of innings have been up for grabs all season long.
So far, there have been no shortage of takers.
