Roy Halladay Continues to Cement Legacy As Philadelphia Phillie with Perfect Game

"Bookmark



The Philadelphia Phillies, coming off a horrid series against the Mets when they were shut out in a series for the first time in 30 years have gone from one end of the spectrum to the other.

Roy Halladay threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins tonight, striking out 11 batters in a 1-0 victory.

In the ninth inning, Halladay faced a couple former Phillies to complete his perfect game.  Former Phil Wes Helms struck out and Ronny Paulino grounded out to shortstop Juan Castro to end the game.

This is the second perfect game in Phillies history.  Jim Bunning, threw the Phillies first perfect game on Father's Day in 1964 against the New York Mets.

Halladay is only beginning to cement his legacy as a member of the Phillies.  In less than a half of his first season as a Philadelphia Phillie, he has a 7-3 record with 5 complete games, 3 shutouts, and now a perfect game.
