UPDATE: Roy Halladay throws perfect game

May 29, 2010, 8:58 PM EDT

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.

    For all you Yankee fans, yes, it counts, even if it wasn’t thrown by a Yankee or against them.
    I own both Braden and Halladay in one of my leagues. The fact that I’m in 8th place of 18 tells you about the rest of my team. :D
    Congratulations, Doc!

    Another perfect game?!?! What is going on in baseball. That’s eight in less than 20 years. Seriously, baseball, what the hell?? Way to turn a “rare” occasion into an every-other-year event.

    Yeah, all these epic pitching performances are really ruining baseball…

    Seriously, congrats to Roy. He earned it.

    Bobby Higginson haunts Doc no more. Couldn’t be happier for him.

    Tip o’ the cap to Doc, and the Feesh sink a little further beneath the estraged attractor, .500. On the bright side, JJ was so good tonight that it took a perfect game (and a Feesh error – they’d been getting a little rarer but this one was timed perfectly) to beat him.

    Congrats to the best pitcher in the game. Although I’d have loved to see this happens in a Blue Jays uniform, I still root for the guy always. He is the most humble guy too, good for him!

    I love the rubes around baseball talking about Halladay like he’s new at all this. It might have been his first perfect game but he’s been a touch above for several years.

    Congratulations to “Doc” Halladay and the perfecto! A good guy and a great pitcher for youngsters (and those of us who are young at heart) to follow. Hope that AFN over here rebroadcasts the game.
