Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies Defeat Cincinnati Reds 4-0 In MLB NL Division Series

April 12, 2016 by · 1 Comment 

The Philadelphia Phillies took a 1-0 lead over the Cincinnati Reds in their NL division series with a 4-0 shutout on Wednesday.

Roy Halladay, who made his first career postseason start, pitched a perfect game. The way Halladay played on Wednesday and with Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt yet to flex their baseball muscles, the defending two-time NL champion Phillies may well be on their way to their third consecutive pennant.

His first perfect game was on May 29 at Florida. This was ‘Doctober’ Halladay’s second no-hitter for the year. In postseason history, it was the second no-hitter in since Don Larsen threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees against Brooklyn in the 1956 World Series.

A sacrifice fly by Chase Utley allowed a run for the Phillies in the first inning. Halladay singled for another run and Shane Victorino hit a two-run single for a three-run inning in the second.

Reds pitcher Edinson Volquez looked like a rookie against the more experienced Phillies squad, allowing all four runs in the second and third innings.

The Phillies host Game 2 on Friday as heavy favorites to win this series.
