Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher Roy Halladay Starts Game in Historic Fashion
By this point in his time with the Phillies, Roy Halladay has proven he can do some amazing things – win the Cy Young award unanimously, throw a perfect game, and throw a no-hitter in his first-ever postseason start.
Today however he did something that was more rare than any of those feats.
He threw 18 consecutive strikes to start the game against the New York Mets, becoming just the second pitcher in the last 21 years to do so. Halladay’s 18 strikes took him into the third inning, before he finally threw a ball on his 19th pitch.
Ironically, the other guy to do it since 1990 was Sid Fernandez, former Mets pitching star.
