The Nationals, obviously, are hardly alone in having been dominated by the man they call Doc. This season, Halladay has begun his defense of his 2010 Cy Young by pitching like Roy Halladay. He’s allowed one run and issued one walk in 11 innings. Last night, Jerry Hairston called him “probably the best pitcher in the league.”

So, yeah, the Nationals have their work cut out for them. Discuss the game right here. And follow the action here.
