Roy Oswalt went to take the hill for the seventh inning Friday night, but didn't even begin the inning. He met on the mound with manager Charlie Manuel and trainer Marc Anderson and then left the game. He reportedly suffered a lower back strain (MLB.com via Twitter)
Oswalt, 33, was perfect through three innings and left after six with a 3-2 lead. He attempted a sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the sixth, which turned into a fielder's choice. He then ran the bases and that's reportedly when he tweaked his back.
The Phillies' righty entered the game 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through two starts, spanning 12 innings. He has made at least 30 starts for the past seven seasons, though he has made six trips to the disabled list.
