Halladay Throws 2nd Postseason No-Hitter

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Roy Halladay has thrown the second no-hitter in postseason history, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NL division series on Wednesday.

Halladay, who threw a perfect game at Florida on May 29, dominated the Reds with a sharp fastball and a devastating slow curve in his postseason debut. The All-Star right-hander allowed one runner, walking Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth, and struck out eight.

Don Larsen is the only pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter. He threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series against Brooklyn.
