CLEARWARTER, FLA. - This time, it wasn’t bats, but a bug that knocked out Roy Halladay.

The Phillies righty headed for the clubhouse after only one inning of work against the Baltimore Orioles with a stomach virus on Sunday afternoon at Bright House Field.

Closer Jonathan Papelbon, also scheduled to pitch, was scratched for the same reason.

In Halladay’s 10-pitch first inning, his fastball was clocked at 86-88 mph on radar guns behind home plate.

“About the same as his last time out,” said one scout, referring to Halladay’s previous start, against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
