Happ Over Pedro For Game 3

large_ja happ

With tonights scheduled game 3 pushed back to tomorrow evening due to inclimate weather, Phils’ skipper Charlie Manuel has decided to skip his original starter Pedro Martinez in favor of rookie of the year candidate J.A. Happ.

Happ threw just four pitches in game 2 on Thursday due to being beamed in the leg by a Seth Smith line drive, but by all accounts is perfectly healthy and able to take the mound. The rookie tossed a complete game shutout against the Rockies in August.

While the move might miff veteran Pedro Martinez it’s another chance for the Philles to highlight Colorado’s struggles against left-handed pitching.
