DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Roy Halladay pitched two shutout innings against his former team in his first start of spring training, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 Monday.
Halladay allowed two hits, struck out one and walked one. He pitched for the Blue Jays from 1998-09, then was traded to the Phillies.
``Just being in the game again is fun,' said Halladay, who led the NL with 21 wins last season. ``You can throw as many bullpens and you want but it's always different once you get out there. It's always fun getting back out there.'
Carlos Ruiz had a two-run double in the second inning off Blue Jays starter Jo-Jo Reyes, and Placido Polanco had a two-run single off Carlos Villanueva in a three-run fourth. Mike McCoy doubled in the seventh to end a 24-inning scoreless streak for the Blue Jays.
