2010 HEADLINE: Roy Halladay Fires ‘Perfect Game’ Against The Marlins
On this day in 2010, Roy Halladay threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins.
I watched each and every pitch of this game in my living room as it was heralded as being a battle of the two most dominating pitchers in the National League – Halladay and Josh Johnson.
As the game unfolded, it was hard to not cheer for Halladay as he kept inching towards baseball history.
His performance was unreal, and while I would have preferred that the moment had not taken place against ‘my team’, it is always nice to catch baseball history in the making.
Halladay’s numbers: 9 innings pitched, 0 hits allowed, 0 runs allowed, 11 strikeouts, 0 walks allowed, and 115 pitches.
The Phillies won the game 1-0.
