Tough loss for Doc
Photos
Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1
Roy Halladay struck out six, walked one and induced 17 ground-ball outs. (J.P. Moczulski/AP)
Roy Halladay pitched better than the results would indicate, limiting Texas to four runs on 11 hits over nine innings. But the Jays' offense never sparked, and Toronto was held to one run, scored on David Eckstein's single in the seventh.
