Halladay vs. Johnson Matchup Highlights Phillies Upcoming Trip
Tonight, the Phillies begin a huge early-season road trip starting with three games against the 2nd place Marlins and then three more against the 3rd place Braves. It’s still early, but with holding just a 2 game lead on Florida and 3.5 lead on Atlanta, it’s a pretty big week for all teams involved.
The trip is filled with excellent pitching matchups, but the highlight is sure to be Tuesday night’s showdown between reigning Cy Young award winner, Roy Halladay, and Marlins ace, Josh Johnson. Both pitchers have started the year off in All-Star fashion; Johnson is 2nd in the NL with a sparkling 1.68 ERA, and Halladay is tied for the league lead with 5 wins and is 5th in the league with a 2.19 ERA.
At an average of $71 each, ticket prices, as you might expect, are higher for this game than any of the other five listed in the chart – 39% higher than the other two games in Florida and 6% higher than the three games in Atlanta.
