Halladay had given up four runs (all earned) on a one home run during the first two innings. He also walked one batter and did not record a strikeout. The Phillies said that Halladay was pulled as a precaution. The temperature during the game was in the mid-90s which might have impacted Halladay but certainly took its toll on one of his foes.
St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina hit a grand slam off of Halladay in the first inning but left the game in the fifth inning due to dehydration.
