Phillies Roy Halladay Throws No-hitter



Bookmark and Share

PHILADELPHIA - Roy Halladay has thrown the second no-hitter in postseason history in the Philadelphia Phillies' dominating 4-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the opener of the NL division series.
    Halladay, who threw a perfect game at Florida on May 29, dominated the Reds with a sharp fastball and a devastating slow curve in his postseason debut. The All-Star right-hander allowed one runner, walking Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth, and struck out eight.
    Don Larsen is the only pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter. He threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series against Brooklyn.
    Halladay struck out eight and walked just one. He threw 104 pitches, 79 for strikes. The final out was a swinging bunt by Brandon Phillips, who was thrown out by the catcher Carlos Ruiz on a close play at first.
    The Phils scored one run in the first inning and added three more in the second inning. Shane Victorino's two-run single highlighted the three-run inning.
    That was all Halladay needed to record his second no-hitter of the season.
    Nolan Ryan was the last major leaguer to toss two no-hitters in the same season, in 1973.
    The Phils and Reds have an off day Thursday before the series resumes Friday night at Citizens Bank Park.
