Roy Halladay Pitches No-Hitter In Playoff Debut

Congratulations, Mr. Halladay
Congratulations, Mr. Halladay

Congratulations to the best pitcher in baseball welcoming himself to the postseason stage in the best way possible, as Roy Halladay no-hit the Reds to give the Phillies a 4-0 win in Game 1 of their NLDS. Only a two-out walk in the fifth inning to Jay Bruce kept this game from being a perfecto.

Move over Don Larsen, you have company.

Also, Nolan Ryan was the last pitcher to have two no-hitters in the same season, which he did for the Angels in 1973 (on May 15 and July 15).
