Halladay Injured as Phillies Blanked by Marlins

In what could be the final start by Roy Halladay in Phillies pinstripes, the Phillies were shutout by the Miami Marlins, 4-0. The injury was the biggest news of the evening.

Halladay left the game after just 16 pitches – registering one out and walking two batters – with what the team called “arm fatigue.” His velocity peaked at just 83 mph and Doc worked up a healthy lather that should only happen after 160 pitches, not 16. Something is clearly not right and it seems unlikely he’ll make his final start of the season in Atlanta.

Offensively, it was the 14th time in 2013 the Phillies were shutout. Nate Eovaldi was the man who blanked them, working 7 2/3  innings, allowing just three hits while fanning five. The Phillies could muster up just four hits on the evening.

    I don’t know about you guys but. When this season is over the brass has some work to do to fix this offense. Shame that it’s gonna be over. I have mixed feelings. In one way I’m glad it’s almost done, cause of all the frustration this year. It was like 2011 part two. Only a tad worse.
    Anyway, on the other hand I’m gonna miss watching. I bitch and moan all the while the game is going on yet I’m going to go through withdrawal as I do every year after the season is over. That’s what made the postseason so great! ( specially when our team is in it.) It shortened the off season.
    Oh well, guess I’ll have to do what I’m used to being a Phillies fan since 1962. Wait for next season with high hopes AGAIN. Only to bitch and moan all year. I know someday when I’m gone and I go to the big stadium in the sky. When I get to the pearly gates they say Name? When I give it to them they’ll say . Ohhhh Phillies fan? ok go over there with the rest of the whiners. You’re all good people, but you sure curse a lot every summer.

    Ryne i think most of us feel that way. Watching the game is part of my routine and i miss it. Been like that since my mom yes mom (dad doesnt watch any sports) got me into watching baseball since was about 9 or so. Even to this day we occasionally watch together. Though now she seems to be into boxing a little more. Of course can always watch other teams play. Pittsbugh for example who’s drought was a very long time.
