Charlie Manuel announced that pitching ace Roy Halladay suffered a groin pull in the second inning of tonight's game.
"In the second inning he had a mild groin pull in his right groin," Manuel said. "He was determined he was going to stay in there.
"He said he hurt it when he tried to hump up on [Buster] Posey in the second inning. He was determined he was going to stay in the game. He wanted to try it and stay in the game ... He gutted it out and we needed it. I was kidding with him after the game. I said to him, 'When are you going to be able to play? Next year?' He said, 'Five days.'
Halladay pitched six innings and was the winning pitcher in the Phillies' season-saving, 4-2 victory over the Giants in Game 5 tonight in San Francisco.
