Game 5 Preview

It would seem another Roy Halladay-Tim Lincecum pitching matchup could not generate nearly as much hype and anticipation than what preceded the first-ever meeting between the two aces to open the NL championship series.

However, with San Francisco on the verge of clinching its first pennant in eight years, that’s very possible this time.

Facing elimination, Halladay and the visiting Philadelphia Phillies look to prevent Lincecum and the Giants from reaching the World Series in Game 5 on Thursday.

Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel decided against bringing back Halladay on three days’ rest for Game 4. Now, he will have the 21-game winner fresh to face the two-time reigning NL Cy Young award winner for this crucial contest after Juan Uribe’s sacrifice fly off reliever Roy Oswalt in the ninth inning Wednesday gave San Francisco a 6-5 win and 3-1 series lead.

The Giants, who have not won a World Series since 1954 when the franchise was in New York, are in good position to make their first appearance in the Fall Classic since losing in seven games to the Angels in 2002.

Philadelphia, meanwhile, is trying to get this series back home, where it has won three of its last four postseason games. (Source)
