Halladay throws perfect game, 6 years ago today

doctobercolorThe Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Halladay threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins, six years ago today.

On Saturday, May 29, 2010, at Sun Life Stadium, Halladay sent every Marlins batter he faced back to the dugout, and a lone unearned run in the third was all the Phillies needed to defeat Florida 1-0.

Halladay added a second no-hitter in the 2010 postseason, shutting down the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in the first game of the National League Divisional Series.

Also throwing a no-hitter on this date is Ed Morris, who tossed one for the American Association’s Columbus Buckeyes 132 years ago today. On Thursday, May 29, 1884 at Pittsburgh’s Recreation Park, Morris shut down the Pittsburgh Alleghenys for a 5-0, no-hit win.
