UPDATE: He did it! He did it! Halladay retired 27 of 27 Marlins hitters and just completed the 20th perfect game in MLB history. It is the second in Phillies history.
UPDATE: Halladay is now perfect through eight innings with 10 total strikeouts. He’s up to 103 pitches, but high pitch counts have never really bothered the workhorse right-hander.
8:58pm: Let’s go ahead and reel in some of you folks who are locked in on NBC’s Stanley Cup finals coverage or the NBA Playoffs. We may have a historic night in south Florida, as Phillies starter Roy Halladay has a perfect game through seven innings against the Marlins.
He has fanned nine batters without allowing a walk or a hit. The former Toronto ace has never thrown a no-no, never mind a perfect game. We’ll have updates as he continues toward history.
