Roy Halladay hurled a complete-game shutout Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing just four hits and one walk while improving to 4-0 with a 0.82 ERA on the season.
In an odd coincidence the man Halladay was essentially traded for, Cliff Lee, also began his Phillies career with an identical 4-0 record and 0.82 ERA last season. Lee ended up going 11-4 with a 2.78 ERA in 17 starts between the regular season and playoffs.
Lee hasn’t actually pitched yet for Seattle due to an abdominal strain, but MLB recently dropped his five-game suspension and the Mariners have scheduled his debut for next Friday.
