Roy Halladay was feeling dizzy and sick which quite frankly sent shivers through the ranks of the Philadelphia Phillies on a rather hot night. But no worries through as their ace may be ready for his next start so the Phillies had some good news even though they lost the game to the Cubs. Betting lines
Both Carlos Pena and Armiz Ramirez had homered back to back which kicked off a dominant start by the Chicago Cubs which helped them to beat the Phillies 6-1 yesterday night when Hallady had to leave the game because of the heat. Sports scores
The spokesman for the team Greg Casterioto had said that Halladay was absolutely expected to make it to the next start against San Diego on Sunday. The pitcher however was not available for comments after the game. Halladay managed to double over and was visited by his trainer after it was Starlin Castro who led off the fifth inning with just a single. Then came Drew Carpenter to replace him. Hallady was looking tired and drenched in sweat on a rather humid night in which the temperature was 91 degrees which did affect him. Football scores
Charlie Manuel said “He got a little dizzy,” “We were a little concerned about dehydration, brought him in here and got (the Cubs’) doctor and he was looking at him.”
He said “You have to have the All-Star game, I understand that, but guys who go to the All-Star game come back a little drawn,” “It’s a busy three days. You’ve got (New York Mets CF Carlos) Beltran out with the flu, Doc tonight. it’s just a hectic schedule. They fly out there, different time zones. there’s a bunch to it. This guy takes tremendous care of himself. He’s doing better now, and that’s what we’re hoping for.”
This was Halladay’s shortest outing since he had pitched three innings for Toronto when playing against Florida on 12th June 2009 and it ended a string of 63 road starts which he lasted around six innings. This was the longest such streak since back when Walter Johnson went 82 straight road starts from 1911-15. It was Ramirez who gave the Cubs a 1-0 lead in the first when he hit a 17th homer and the 12th in 23 games.
