Roy Halladay did not look like Roy Halladay as the Phillies Ace struggled and got roughed up by the Bombers 8-3 Wednesday. Roy had only given up three homers all year and none to left handed hitters. So to give up three Homers to the Yankees and have them all by lefties was surprising.
The Yankees offensive barrage started in the second inning with Brett Gardner hitting a two run triple that scored Nick Swisher and Jorge Posada. At this point you had to think well they got two against the great Roy Halladay they better just hope its enough and that CC Sabathia stays tough. That kind of thinking was all for not however as Curtis Granderson and Swisher both Homered in the Third to make the score 5-0 after three.After another HR given up in the Fifth to Mark Texieria that was it for Roy. The Phillies gave up two more insurance runs after Philly battled back for three runs in the forth but it was hardly enough. CC went seven and the Bull Pen shut it down, result Theeeeee Yankeeees win.
