For the first time in his career, Roy Halladay walked an opposing pitcher Tuesday, giving Josh Johnson a free pass with one out in the third inning in the game against the Marlins.

Johnson advanced to third on a Chris Coghlan double and then scored on a sac fly from Emilio Bonifacio.

Halladay, of course, only had to face pitchers in interleague play during his time with the Blue Jays.  Still, he had taken on pitchers 87 times in his career.  They were 12-for-80 with two doubles, six sac bunts and a sac fly against him, which was good for a .150/.148/.175 line.
