To say that Phillies starter Roy Halladay had a rough game on Sunday might be an understatement. The Phillies fell 14-2 to the Marlins (Halladay's second straight start in a 14-2 loss), and the former Cy Young Award winner's line was hideous: 2 1/3 innings, four hits, nine runs, one home run, four walks, two hit batters, and four strikeouts. Put it all in a blender, and you get a cool game score of 13. After the game, Halladay admitted he has been dealing with shoulder soreness for his last two starts, and will be seeing Dr Lewis Yocum for an opinion on his shoulder. If this really is the beginning of the end, it's a sad way to go out.

Game of the Day: Royals 6, White Sox 5 (ten innings). Trailing 3-1 through six, the White Sox couldn't touch Kansas City starter Wade Davis. But Davis exited to begin the seventh, and Chicago struck against Royals reliever Tim Collins. Collins allowed a pair of singles and a double to make it a 3-3 game before he was relieved by Aaron Crow. Crow then let Alejandro de Aza to score on a wild pitch to put the Sox in front, and an Alex Rios homer extended their lead to two. But in the ninth with closer Addison Reed on the hill, Billy Butler hit a two-run double, bringing in Chris Getz and George Kottaras to tie the game. The teams went into extras, and Brian Omogrosso fell into a trap after allowing a leadoff single to Lorenzo Cain. With two outs and Cain on second, he intentionally walked Getz to put two on and two out for the slow of foot Kottaras. But then, Omogrosso walked Kottaras on five pitches, with the Kansas City catcher never moving his bat. Alex Gordon then smashed a walkoff single to give the Royals the win.no comments
