Halladay makes appearance, Phils beat Jays, 7-2
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP)
Roy Halladay allowed two runs over 4 1-3 innings in his first big league spring training appearance in 11 days, prepping for the regular season in the Philadelphia Phillies' 7-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner had not pitched in a major league game since March 17, when he came out of a start against Baltimore after one inning due to a stomach virus. He pitched in a minor league exhibition last Saturday.
''Physically this is as good as I've felt coming out of spring training in probably five years as far as total body,'' Halladay said. ''Stuff-wise, I think location and movement I'm just a click behind where I want to be.''
Toronto starter Brandon Morrow gave up three runs - two earned - and six hits in seven innings.
