PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Roy Halladay was not with the Phillies Thursday afternoon for their 4-0 win over the Braves.

The team says that Halladay will be tending to a family matter, and will return to the team Friday in Washington DC.

Halladay and the Phillies blew a 6-0 lead in Wednesday night’s game against the Braves, eventually losing the game 15-13 in 11 innings. Halladay allowed eight runs and 12 hits, in arguably his worst start as a member of the Phillies. It was noted during the game that Halladay was (and still is, as he did not get the loss) 107-0 when given a four run lead in a game.

After starting 3-0, Halladay is 0-2 in his last three starts, with an ERA of 6.05. He’s allowed 23 hits and walked six batters in 19.1 innings in those three starts.

There was speculation by some that Halladay didn’t look good in Spring Training, by Hardball Talk, and questions about his velocity from Phillies Nation and by Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. Halladay disputed the notion that decreased velocity was a problem.
