Roy Halladay throws postseason no-hitter; 2nd in history!

Roy Halladay, age 33, has certainly earned his paycheck and has given the Philadelphia Phillies fans something to talk about in years to come.

Halladay became the second pitcher in MLB postseason history to throw a no-hitter, no 2 behind the likes of Don Larsen who threw a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1956 World Series Game 5.

Halladay threw a total 104 pitches, 79 for strikes, struck out 8 and walked 1 in the 5th inning for his only blemish as the Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in the 1st game of the NL Division Series in Philadelphia.

Incredibly, Halladay had already pitched a perfect game this year against the Florida Marlins on May 29.   He joins only 5 other pitchers to have 2 no-hitters in one calendar year and the first to do 1 in regular season and 1 in postseason play.
