Roy Halladay turned in one of his worst starts in recent memory on Wednesday, giving up eight runs on 12 hits in just 5 1/3 innings against the Braves.
Halladay was staked to a 6-0 lead in the fifth inning and appeared to be well on his way to picking up an easy victory. But the Braves erupted for six runs on six hits in the fifth inning alone, capped off by a three-run homer from Brian McCann. Halladay came back out for the sixth inning but surrendered two more hits before being lifted for a reliever. The poor outing raises his ERA from 1.95 to 3.40. He’ll look to put this one behind him and get back on track when he takes on the Mets on Monday.
