PHILADELPHIA — When the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants meet in the NL championship series, runs won’t come easy.

These teams have perhaps the two best starting rotations in the majors. For the Phillies, it’s Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels. For the Giants, it’s Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Jonathan Sanchez.

The Phillies feature three aces who have 11 All-Star games, one Cy Young Award, one NLCS MVP award, one World Series MVP award, one perfect game and one no-hitter on their impressive resumes.

The Giants’ Big Three have combined for four All-Star games and two Cy Young Awards.

Game 1 is Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. It’ll be The Freak vs. Doc.
