CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Roy Halladay left Sunday's start for the Philadelphia Phillies after one inning because of a stomach virus.

Halladay allowed one hit and a walk against the Baltimore Orioles before leaving the dugout before the start of the second inning. He was sweating profusely when he was pitching and at one point bent over behind the mound.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner was roughed up in his last start and said he felt "lethargic" afterward. He insisted he had no injury. Halladay missed almost two months last year with a shoulder problem.
