Halladay leaves game with arm fatigue, Marlins shut out Phillies
In what was quite possibly his final start in a Philadelphia Phillies uniform, Roy Halladay was yanked early due to arm fatigue.
Halladay made it just 16 pitches into the game before manager Ryne Sandberg visited the mound and took the ball from him. He had retired just one Marlins hitter.
It was a fitting, if not sad, way for the potential Hall of Famer’s four-year run in Philadelphia to come to an end. The last two seasons have been injury-plagued, reducing Halladay to a shell of his former self.
The Phillies’ bats looked fatigued, too, on Monday night. The team mustered just four hits in the 4-0 loss to the lowly Marlins (58-99).
No Phillies hitter mustered more than one hit.
Marlins starting pitcher Nate Eovaldi went 7 2/3 innings, allowing just three hits while striking out five. Left fielder Christian Yelich was 2-for-3 on the night with an RBI.
The Phillies fell to 71-85 with the loss.
