CLEARWATER, Fla. — Roy Halladay left after one inning because of a stomach virus in the Philadelphia Phillies’ 5-3 win over a Baltimore Orioles’ split squad on Sunday.
Halladay allowed one hit and a walk. He was sweating profusely when he was pitching and at one point bent over behind the mound.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner was roughed up in his previous start and said he felt “lethargic” afterward. He insisted he had no injury. Halladay missed almost two months last year with a shoulder problem.
Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer for the Phillies — homering on St. Patrick’s Day for the third straight year.
Yankees 11, Pirates 9
BRADENTON, Fla. — Ivan Nova struggled in his latest bid to gain the upper hand in the competition for a spot in the Yankees’ rotation, giving up four runs in New York’s victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates highlighted by Melky Mesa’s grand slam.
Kevin Youkillis added a two-run shot for New York, and Brennan Boesch had two hits and a sacrifice fly in his second game with the Yankees.
Nova gave up six hits and a walk in five innings.
Braves 2, Mets 1
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Julio Teheran struck out seven in six innings, Chris Johnson homered and Freddie Freeman hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth inning as the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets.
Jonathon Niese gave up one run and two hits in five innings.
