Worth noting

• Ruiz, serving a 25-game suspension for using a banned stimulant, and outfielder Delmon Young, rehabbing from ankle surgery, again played in the extended spring program Monday. Ruiz caught six innings, threw out two runners attempting to steal, walked twice and drove in a pair of runs. Young went hitless in five at-bats.

• Halladay's eight-game winning streak (nine starts, 8-0, 2.12 ERA) against the Mets ended Monday night. The last time he was beaten by the Mets was July 16, 2001.

• Halladay has allowed five or more earned runs in back-to-back starts for the first time since June 6 and June 12, 2007.
