with catcher Carlos Ruiz after throwing a no-hitter to
defeat the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NLDS on Wednesday.
WHAT A GAME! There's not a Phillies fan in the entire Delaware Valley that will EVER forget what a magical game Roy Halladay threw last night!
It should have been "Doc" Halladay's SECOND PERFECT GAME IN ONE SEASON, if not for a walk in the 5th inning. As far was we are concerned, it was a perfect game.
The Phillies pitcher makes history as only the second guy in baseball recorded history to throw a no-hitter during the playoffs. It was history making as well for the Phillies Team to have a second no-hitter in a single season. And it makes Halladay the 5th pitcher in MLB to do it twice in one season.
Oh, and let's not forget, Halladay hit a single, RBI AND scored a run! If not for that damned walk it would have been the most perfect game in history. (It still is!)
"The excitement spread beyond Citizens Bank Park — the last two outs were shown on the video board at Target Field, where the Twins were preparing to play the Yankees, and Minnesota fans cheered." Right on!
