Roy Halladay Injury: Phillies Ace Leaves Game Vs. Cardinals With Shoulder Tightness

Yadier Molina's grand slam put the Philadelphia Phillies behind for good, but if this Roy Halladay injury is a serious one the pitches he threw to get out of a scoreless second inning they could prove far more damaging to the Phillies' playoff hopes than that one mistake in the first. Halladay left the Phillies' loss vs. the St. Louis Cardinals with what they later announced to be shoulder soreness, according to Philly.com. The Cardinals went on to put four more runs on relievers Joe Savery and Chad Qualls.

This hasn't quite been a classic Roy Halladay season to date—he's 4-5, with an ERA of 3.98—and some Phillies observers have been worried about what appears to be a slight decline in velocity all season.

Halladay's shoulder will be given the once, twice, or three-times-over over the next few days, as the Philadelphia Phillies scramble to find out what's wrong with their ace and the consensus best-pitcher-in-baseball.
