Colorado native Roy Halladay, now pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies, just threw a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in the first game of this National League Division series. He walked Jay Bruce in the fifth inning to spoil the perfect game.â†µ
This is only the second no-hitter thrown during the postseason. The first was Don Larsen's perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series. This was Roy Halladay's second no-hitter of the season, the first being his perfect game back on May 29, 2010.â†µ
Halladay grew up in Arvada and graduated from Arvada West High School in 1995. The Blue Jays selected him in the first round of the draft that year. He was with the Blue Jays through the 2009 season when he was traded to the Phillies in December 2009.
