9:18 PM: Wood lost his bid for a perfect game on a Carlos Ruiz double with no outs in the ninth. Still, a fine performance from a promising youngster on a first-place Reds team.
9:15 PM: Halladay held the Reds to one hit and zero runs in the top of the ninth inning. Wood will need to put in some extra work in order to secure a perfect game. One thing’s for sure: Reds manager Dusty Baker will have no problem leaving the 23-year-old rookie in for well over 120 pitches.
9:05 PM: Wood made it through the eighth inning unscathed and will head into the ninth with a chance to make history. The score is still 0-0, however, and Wood has thrown 92 pitches. He needs a little help from his offense.
8:58 PM: There’s an exceptional pitching duel going on right now in Philadelphia.
Reds youngster Travis Wood has thrown seven perfect innings with eight strikeouts in his third major league start and Phillies ace Roy Halladay has allowed only four hits over eight scoreless frames. The score is 0-0. We’ll keep you updated.
