Halladay, who had given up five homers in three spring starts, allowed just one extra-base hit, an Adam Jones double, in this one. He struck out five and walked none.
Halladay was working at 87-89 mph while giving up five runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings against the Twins six days ago. Today’s radar gun readings were closer to his usual norm; Halladay averaged 91.3 mph with his fastball last year. Phillies fans and fantasy owners should both be pleased.
