Congratulations, Doc

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball

Enough can’t be said about how great Roy Halladay’s performance was last night. Pitching a no-hitter in the playoffs is something that has only happened once before. Pitching a second no-hitter in the same season is another feat that is rarely seen too. Pretty good for a guy making his first ever start in the post-season.
 
The Philadelphia Phillies ace only allowed a single walk to the Cincinnati Reds last night, a team that lead the National League in team batting average, home runs and RBIs. A Triple Crown team couldn’t hit this guy! Talk about greatness.
 
Even at the plate Doc was stunning. He delivered an RBI single and scored a run to help his own cause. How many no-hitter pitchers can stake that claim?

After years of leading the Blue Jays, he got exactly what he deserved in his first trip to the games that matter in October. He did everything that he could possibly do and it straight-up worked. Every Jays supporter can’t help but be extremely happy for Doc. Jays fans are living vicariously through the eyes of the Philly faithful right now and couldn’t be more proud of the true best pitcher in the game.
