Doc struggles again, Jays swept


Get well soon, Doc

Get well soon, Doc

Where have you gone, Roy Halladay? Doc dropped his third straight start this afternoon and fell to 3-7 since June 29 as the Jays were bombed 7-0 in Boston. The loss was Toronto’s sixth in six games at Fenway in 2009 and their 12th in the last 16 games overall.

Halladay’s not the kind of guy you’d think would get easily rattled, but it’s pretty apparent all the garbage that’s been thrown around the past couple months has messed up his routine. His last seven times out, Doc has given up 65 hits in 49 innings and at least seven hits in each outing. He hasn’t reached the seventh inning in any of his last three starts after going that far 20 times in his first 22 appearances this season.

It doesn’t get much easier for Doc and the Jays — they’re headed to Texas for four games in three days (doubleheader Tuesday) against a Rangers team that likely isn’t pleased with the way Toronto let the Red Sox walk all over them this weekend. Texas is three-and-a-half games back of Boston for the wild card, and sends rookie Derek Holland to the hill to face Brett Cecil in the opener Monday night.
