Phillies' Roy Halladay pitches no-hitter

New, 4 comments

Until Wednesday, there had been only one no-hitter in the postseason history of Major League Baseball -- Don Larsen's perfect game for the New York Yankees in 1956. Make that two.

Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies was masterful in pitching a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of their National League playoff series. The Phillies won, 4-0.

Only a fifth-inning walk kept Halladay from matching Larsen. Not bad for his first postseason start. Halladay had a perfect game earlier this year and is the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1973 to have two no-hitters in the same season. It was fun watching history made in Philadelphia.
