A look back at some of Roy Halladay’s best performances.
Sept. 27, 1998
In just his second career start, the Toronto Blue Jays rookie throws a complete game, one-hitter to beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1. Halladay strikes out eight and does not walk a batter.
Sept. 6, 2003
Halladay throws a 10-inning shutout for the Blue Jays against the Tigers. It’s the first extra-inning shutout in baseball since Jack Morris accomplished the feat in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. Halladay allows three hits, walks one and strikes out five.
Dec. 15, 2009
The Phillies trade minor-league prospects Travis d’Arnaud, Kyle Drabek and Michael Taylor to the Blue Jays for Halladay.
April 5, 2010
Halladay makes his Phillies debut, earning the win in an 11-1 victory over the Nationals in Washington. Halladay strikes out nine and allows six hits and a run in seven innings.
May 29, 2010
Halladay throws the 20th perfect game in major league history. He retires all 27 batters and strikes out 11 in a 1-0 win over the Florida Marlins.
Oct. 6, 2010
Halladay makes his postseason debut one to remember. He throws the second no-hitter in post season history, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-0. Halladay’s only blemish — a fifth-inning walk to Jay Bruce.
April 24, 2011
Halladay strikes out a season-high 14 in 8.2 innings in a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres.
Oct. 7, 2011
In Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, Halladay allows a first-inning run. He then shuts out the Cardinals for the next seven innings, but his effort was not enough. The Phillies lose 1-0 despite Halladay’s brilliant performance. Philadelphia has not been in a playoff game since that night.
