Game 6 Preview

Roy Oswalt is right at home — pitching as a starter in a ballpark where he’s never lost. Back in a familiar role after an unsuccessful guest appearance as a reliever, Oswalt gets the ball for Game 6 on Saturday when the Phillies try to even the NL championship series against San Francisco.

Oswalt dominated the Giants in Game 2, but took the loss when he came out of the bullpen and allowed Juan Uribe’s game-ending sacrifice fly in the ninth inning in Game 4.

Roy Halladay helped the Phillies avoid elimination with a gutsy effort pitching through a groin pull Thursday night, sending the series back to Philadelphia with the Giants ahead 3-2.

Now it’s Oswalt’s turn. He’s 10-0 lifetime at Citizens Bank Park.

“Numbers, to me, are no big deal,” Oswalt said. “I didn’t want to get the loss for sure. But you never know when you’re going to get back here. So that’s one of the reasons I wanted to be in the game the other night. I don’t know how much longer I’m going to play. But I may not get to this spot again. So I’m going to try to do everything possible to get to that final game.”

This will be Oswalt’s sixth start against the Giants this year. They beat him three times during the regular season when he was with Houston. Oswalt pitched well in those games, but got no run support. He’s beaten San Francisco twice with the Phillies.

Hamels, the 2008 World Series MVP, is scheduled to start against Matt Cain on Sunday night if the Phillies survive their second straight do-or-die game. Hamels could even get the call at some point Saturday instead. (Source)
