Roy Halladay Throws Second No-Hitter in Post Season History in First Career Playoff Start

NOHITTER ImageIn his first ever post season start, 33-year old Roy Hallady no-hit the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of National League Divisional Series on Wednesday night, in the process becoming just the 5th pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw two No-Hitters in a single season as well as joining Don Larsen as the only pitcher to throw a post season No-Hitter.

Wednesday night's game was the 347 start of the 2003 Cy Young award winner's career, but just his first career post season start. Many wondered how Halladay would respond to pitching in the Playoffs prior to the game's first pitch, in short, Halladay answered with a masterful 104-pitch outing for the ages.

After throwing a perfect game in April against the Marlins, winning 21 games, and now achieving post season immortality by throwing the 2nd post season No-Hitter in the history of America's oldest game, Halladay's 2010 season can't even be put into proper perspective yet, as it doesn't appear to be ending any time soon. Halladay is also expected to win the National League Cy Young Award.
