6 innings of 2-run ball with 6 hits and 2 walks allowed- not really what we've become accustomed to from Roy Halladay. His fastball dipped below 90 mph and his curveball wasn't crisp. He must be tired having pitched all those innings this season and this mediocre performance by his standards is a direct result of that. Not quite. Doc had a pulled right groin, the leg he uses to push off of. That's why he didn't run out his bunt (foul or fair), and that's why his control was inconsistent and his pitches lacking life. This American Badass gutted out 6 innings on a pulled groin. Lesser men would have packed it in for the playoffs. Respect the beast that is Roy Halladay.
