We’re down to the Elite 8 of Opening Day pitchers! Here’s how things went down in round 2:

Steve Carlton Region

#1 2011 Roy Halladay defeated #8 2019 Aaron Nola

#13 2012 Roy Halladay defeats #12 2014 Cliff Lee

#2 2018 Aaron Nola defeats #7 2015 Cole Hamels

#3 2010 Roy Halladay defeated #6 2021 Aaron Nola

Robin Roberts Region

#1 1997 Curt Schilling defeated #8 1992 Terry Mulholland

#4 1993 Terry Mulholland defeated #5 1991 Terry Mulholland

#2 1998 Curt Schilling defeated #7 1995 Curt Schilling

#3 1999 Curt Schilling defeated #11 1994 Curt Schilling

We’ve got one Aaron Nola entry and one Terry Mulholland entry keeping this from being an all Halladay and Schilling affair. Can they hang on for another round?
