Halladay goes three innings; Phils fall to Pirates

Final Score: Pittsburgh 4, Philadelphia 3

Neil Walker's two-run homer in the sixth inning gave the Pirates the lead, and Pittsburgh topped Philadelphia, 4-3, in Grapefruit League action.

Lyle Overbay went 3-for-3 with a double and scored two runs while John Bowker added a double to account for Pittsburgh's other run.

Paul Maholm allowed one run on four hits in the three-inning start while Jeff Karstens allowed one run on two hits in two innings of work to record the win.

Roy Halladay threw three innings of one-hit ball for Philadelphia. The reigning National League Cy Young winner walked two batters while striking out four. J.C. Ramirez was tagged for four runs -- all earned -- on five hits in three innings of work in the loss.

Ben Francisco belted a solo homer in the second inning while going 2-for-3. Delwyn Young finished 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI and Michael Martinez knocked in a run in his only at-bat of the game.

Phillies right fielder Domonic Brown will miss 3-to-6 weeks with a broken hamate bone in his right hand. The injury took place during a second inning swing.
