Roy Halladay has thrown the second post-season no-hitter in baseball history to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in his first post-season start.
The New York Yankees’ Don Larsen threw the only other post-season no-hitter, which was also a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in game 5 of the 1956 World Series.
Tonight, Halladay threw just 104 pitches and allowed only a single base runner, a walk to Jay Bruce in the 5th inning. He struck out a total of eight batters.
As if that weren’t enough, this was Halladay’s second no-hitter of the season. Back on May 29, Roy Halladay threw a perfect game in Miami against the Florida Marlins.
Nolan Ryan was the last major league pitcher to throw 2 no-hitters in a single season back in 1973.
