CLEARWARTER, FLA. - This time, it wasnít 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 Halladayís 10-pitch first inning, his fastball was clocked at 86-88 mph on radar guns behind home plate.
ďAbout the same as his last time out,Ē said one scout, referring to Halladayís previous start, against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
