Halladay roughed up by Twins

The Doc was not in yesterday.

Roy Halladay was not Roy Halladay, allowing five runs on seven hits in 2.2 innings against Minnesota. He walked a batter and struck out three. Josh Willingham hit a solo shot off Halladay in the first inning, and Chris Parmelee crushed a three-run shot in the third.

Halladay's spring ERA ballooned up to 10.57. Is anyone worried though? I didn't think so.

Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless inning, allowing a hit and a walk with one strikeout.

Jimmy Rollins went 0-for-3 on the day, dropping his spring average to .217. Shane Victorino went 1-for-4 but struck out twice and left three runners on. He's batting .231.

Placido Polanco and Carlos Ruiz continued swinging a hot bat; Polly was 2-for-4 with an RBI, keeping his average at .500. Chooch was 2-for-2 with an RBI and a walk, raising his average to .600.

The Phillies have split-squad games today. They'll host the Braves with Joe Blanton starting on the mound, and will visit the Rays where Joel Pineiro gets the nod.
