Halladay appeared to be sweating and laboring very hard and didn't have command from the word go as he walked the opening batter on four pitches. The veteran threw 16 pitches and only five went for strikes before his night was done after one-third of an inning. He was replaced by Luis Garcia, who allowed a run to score charged to Halladay. The 36-year-old left the game on the hook for his fifth loss of the season. He has a 6.82 ERA and was making his 13th start. Halladay may not get another start now that he's dealing with an injury.
