Roy Halladay Is Amazing

Regardless of what happens the rest of the way, Roy Halladay has already made this postseason something to remember.  Halladay got Brandon Phillips (HA!) to ground out weakly in front of the plate to claim the first postseason no-hitter since Don Larsen’s perfect game in 1956.

For a guy making his first ever postseason start, that’s going to be hard to top.

Nine innings, no hits, one walk, eight strikeouts.

Beat that, Cliff Lee.

I’ll have some more later, maybe but I wanted to get this up before dinner.  That was awesome.

  1. Yeah, that was an amazing performance. I actually have Don Larsen’s autograph somewhere. I think he was signing stuff when I was at a baseball card shop back when I was 7 or 8 years old… I guess I should dust it off and sell it while it has picked up some extra value!

  2. A lot of people were curious to see how Halladay would perform in his post-season, and he comes out with only the 2nd no-hitter in the history of baseball in the playoffs. The Phillies have an absolutely dominant rotation of three #1 starters, and Halladay vs Lee would be a great matchup in the World Series.
