Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) — Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay pitched two-innings versus the St. Louis Cardinals, before leaving due to shoulder soreness.

Halladay allowed four runs in the first inning before pitching a perfect second.

Halladay had experienced the shoulder pain during his previous start versus the Nationals, but continued to pitch.

He cut back on the amount he threw between then and know, but it didn’t seem to help.

“Worried? Yeah, definitely I’m concerned,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “Yeah, I’m worried. Our pitching is one of the big things on our club, and when guys miss a turn, yeah, that concerns me.”

Halladay says he expects to be examined on Tuesday.

This season the 35-year-old has a record of 4-5, with a 3.98 ERA and 56 strikeouts.
