Roy Halladay was spanked mercilessly by the Yankees on Tuesday night. The veteran righty, who statistically was a Yankee killer, got roughed up for six runs as the Yankees won 8-3.

C.C. Sabathia bested Doc with his strong seven-inning, three-run performance in which he sat-down seven Phillies. He only gave up five hits and three walks, all coming in his final four innings. Halladay only lasted six innings, allowing his six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five.

Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, and Brett Gardner each had a pair of hits. Granderson, Swisher, and Mark Teixeira all homered tonight, the latter barely leaving the yard. Chase Utley had the only mult-hit game for the Phillies. The entire Phillies line-up mustered only five hits and none were for extra bases.

The Phillies got all three runs in the fourth inning to make it a 5-3 game before Sabathia bore down. The Phillies couldn’t say the same for Halladay who allowed two runs in the second inning thanks to a Gardner triple before giving up a solo homer and two-run shot the following inning. Tex then hit his sissy pop-fly homer down the first base line that barely left the 314-foot mark in the fifth to make it 6-3.

I would have written more but I’m trying to forget about witnessing an ass kicking in person. You’ll hear more about how over rated Yankee Stadium is within a couple days.

WP: Sabathia (7-3). LP: Halladay (8-5).



Jimmy Rollins went 0-for-3 in his first rehab start with Clearwater on Tuesday. The All-Star shortstop is rehabbing his strained calf while on his second stint on the DL with the same injury. Todd Zolecki added to the report that Rollins is expected back this weekend. Hopefully that short time frame isn’t too short as the reason Rollins was back on the DL was because the Phillies rushed him back.

    “You’ll hear more about how over rated Yankee Stadium is within a couple days.”

    That is the best part of this post. I thought it was over rated when I went last year. There is just nothing too special about it except for the manual scoreboard, which is too small to see from the upper deck. Even if you sit in certain parts in the bleachers, that stupid batters eye blocks the view.
