Halladay Hits DL, Richmond Shines

Scott Richmond absolutely lit up the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old rookie struck out a career-high 11 over eight innings and got some hefty run support from his Toronto Blue Jays for a 7-1 win. Richmond surrendered just five hits and retired his last 13 batters, which is a nice turn-around after going 0-3 with a 5.81 ERA over his previous five starts.

The righty’s former high was eight K's, which he enjoyed against the Texas Rangers on April 23rd. He fanned six in the first three innings and walked one for the night. That's pretty awesome for the Jays, considering their ace Roy Halladay and closer Scott Downs have landed on the disabled list.

They'll join the rest of the rotation on the DL -- Dustin McGowan, Shaun Marcum and Jesse Litsch -- all out of commission. Hopefully Toronto, five games out of the AL East lead, can continue to get this kind of production from guys like Richmond. Otherwise, they're totally screwed.

Richmond's Canadian. This is what Canadians do.

Sort of like my Canadian Crusher, who also dominates.

If he continues to pitch like this, maybe Richmond could earn such the distinction of being in the same stratosphere as your Canadian Crush (Morneau, I'm assuming?) and J-Bay.

They may be humble off the field, but they let their performances do all the talking on the field.
