Roy Halladay Pitched Game 5 Of The NLCS With A Groin Injury

Watching Game 5 of the NLCS, one noticed that Roy Halladay wasn't exactly at the top of his game, instead scuffling and having to work out of trouble. We may now have an explanation for why that was.

Charlie Manuel just revealed that Roy Halladay had "mild groin pull" in 2nd inning after facing Posey. "He gutted it out." #Philliesless than a minute ago via web

The injury clearly wasn't a serious one, but it would make sense if it knocked Halladay off his game a little bit. This could be something to monitor going forward, as Halladay could theoretically be available out of the Phillies bullpen in one of the remaining games. The groin injury will probably be a non-factor, but Halladay could wake up a little sore in the morning.
