As promised last week below are some clips from Roy Halladay’s time in Philadelphia. We’ll start it off with Doc’s perfect game against the Marlins on May 25, 2010. This was the first perfect game thrown by a Phillie since Jim Bunning on Father’s Day, June 21, 1964 and only the second perfecto in Phillies history. At the time it was the 20th perfect game in baseball history.
On October 10, 2010 Doc fired the second no-no in MLB playoff history against the Cincinnati Reds. The first was Brooklyn Dodger Don Larson’s perfect game 54 years earlier against the NY Yankees in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.
Next up are highlights from Halladay’s unanimous Cy Young Award winning 2010 season. Doc lead the league in wins, innings pitched, complete games, shut outs and walks allowed per 9 innings.
In 2011 Doc was runner up for the Cy Young Award to Clayton Kershaw. He went 19-6 with a 2.35 ERA and again led the league in complete games, ERA+ and walks allowed per 9 innings.
Doc fans 14 Padres on April 24, 2011.
Doc’s last strong outing in a Phillie uniform. In his 4th start this year on April 19, 2013 Doc went seven strong against the St. Louis Cardinals, the NL’s highest scoring team. Doc allowed 2 hits – both solo HR’s, 2 ER and struck out 6 in 7 innings of work. It was his last win before going on the DL to have his right shoulder surgically repaired.
