TAMPA, Fla. – Roy Halladay allowed one run and three hits in 2 1-3 innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Yankees 10-5 Friday, New York's seventh straight spring loss.
Halladay is coming off an injury-plagued year in which he had his fewest wins (11) since 2004 and the second-worst ERA (4.49) of his career. The righty missed nearly two months in the middle of the season because of a strained back muscle near his shoulder.
The 35-year old Halladay gave up one run in two innings during his first spring training start against Detroit. In a 44-pitch outing Friday, he struck out three and walked one.
Hiroki Kuroda allowed four runs — one earned — and three hits over 1 2-3 innings in his initial exhibition game start for the Yankees.
