The Phillies sent Roy Halladay to the mound to open a three-game series with the Marlins. Halladay lasted just three batters and was charged with a run after one of the inherited runners scored. Marlins left-fielder Christian Yelich went 2-for-3 with a RBI, a walk, and a strikeout. The Phillies offense couldn't muster anything as they went on to lose 4-0. More here.
Phillies starter Roy Halladay lasted just three batters Monday night against the Miami Marlins before being pulled for what the team is calling "arm fatigue." Doc threw 16 pitches, only five strikes, and recorded one out and walked two batters in the shortest outing of his 15-year Major League career. His fastball topped out at just 83 mph and he had sweat pouring off of him as he labored through the three batters he faced. More here.
For Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Saints wasn't the only loss. Johnson lost the top of his left middle finger just above the knuckle during the game. He lost it on a punt return by Darren Sproles but isn't exactly sure how it happened. He did not realize he had lost it until he took off his glove and his finger was still in the glove. Johnson had surgery to shave down the bone but not to reattach the finger. More here.
Broncos Pro-Bowl linebacker Von Miller will not be playing Sunday when the Eagles head to Denver. He has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
