Quotable: Manuel on Roy's Rocky-like Effort

Charlie Manuel on Roy Halladay's rough first inning and subsequent dominance:

"He was kind of like a "Rocky" movie. He got mad after he gave up the homer. That ticked him off. He hung in there and really got going. He's special. He's everything that people talk about."

Asked about whether he was mad in the dugout, Halladay admitted to the frustration after Berkman's homer.

"Yeah, I was upset," Halladay said. "The biggest thing, I think, especially it's early in the game, the biggest thing you try to think about is I can't get it back. I can't go out and pitch and start subtracting runs. You have your moment of frustration and you have to move on, you really do. You can't dwell on it. You can't do anything to get it back so I felt like, at that point, the frustration was out, I just gotta go out and pitch. I'm not going to pack it in, I just have to stick to my plan."
