Phillies manager Charlie Manuel admitted before Saturday's game that the team could shut down Roy Halladay at some point before the season ends, thanks to a subpar year marred by injury.

Doc then took the mound and looked just fine.

The right-hander looked like the Halladay of old, throwing seven masterful innings of shutout ball in the Phillies' 3-0 win against the Diamondbacks.

Halladay (5-5) only gave up three hits in what was his best start since April 5 — Opening Day. That day, he pitched eight innings and gave up only two hits, not allowing a run. Since then, he hasn't registered a shutout. He gave up a season-high eight runs on May 2 and six runs on July 23.
