Halladay Throws Second No Hitter In Baseball Postseason History
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
World Sports History was made in Philadelphia tonight, as the Phillies Roy Holliday became only the second pitcher in the MLB Playoffs or The World Series to throw a no hitter, as the Phils beat the Cincinnati Reds 4 to 0 in game 1 of the NLDS.
CNN Ireporter Al Mealey reports live from The Mealey Sports Desk in Riverside, CA, home of the MLB Dodgers and Angels, for commentary on this incredible feat.
It was 54 years ago this Friday that Don Larson of the Yankees threw the last no - hitter in the post season, in a game that was called by the Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Skully, I will never forget his call: "Swung On and Missed, A Perfect Game!".
Ironically, Roy Halladay threw a perfect game in the regular season earlier this year, against the Florida Marlins on May 29, 2010. Tonight, he missed the perfect game by one pitch, on a 3 - 2 walk. In a correction to the video story, he would have become the 1st ever MLB pitcher to throw two perfect games in one season.
Wow, what a night! Congrats to Roy Halladay, his Phillies Teamates, and the City of Philidelphia - Tonight was the stuff of baseball lore...
