The Phillies arrived at Busch Stadium on Sunday morning looking to make a good weekend even better.

Little did they know this would become Sunday bloody Sunday.

The Phils fell short of a four-game sweep as they were 8-3 losers to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The game wasn’t all that the Phils lost.

Ace righthander Roy Halladay left the game after two innings and 36 pitches due to soreness in the back of his right shoulder (see story). He will be checked by doctors Tuesday and his next start would seem to be in doubt.

Asked how he felt after the game, Halladay used a four-letter word.

“Sore,” he said.

He went on to say that he does not believe the problem is serious.
