Halladay Ends Spring Training with Iffy Performance

It was better than terrible but far from keeping Phillies fans from holding their collective breath heading into the season. Roy Halladay allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings in the Phillies 7-2 spring finale victory over the Blue Jays.

Whether the results showed it, Halladay, along with pitching coach Rich Dubee, said following the game that they were happy with the pitchers delivery. The radar gun also showed 88-90 for the better part of the appearance. Regardless of the outcome, Halladay will start the second game of the regular season, Wednesday in Atlanta.

Chase Utley finished off Spring Training with his fifth home run, and Laynce Nix also went yard. With Utley, Ryan Howard, Domonic Brown, and Ben Revere each playing well, there is at least some room for optimism amidst the turmoil of Halladay.

Up next, the On-Deck series Friday and Saturday against Toronto at Citizens Bank Park before the real fun begins on Monday in Atlanta.
