Just What the Doctor Ordered

Roy Halladay threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins tonight, securing the series for the Phillies. He was dominant from start to finish, striking out 11 Marlins hitters.

The Phillies wouldn't have supported him if not for a Cameron Maybin error in center-field, allowing the Phils to score a run. One run would be all they'd need.

It's the 20th perfect game in Major League Baseball history and the 2nd in Phillies history as he joins Jim Bunning on that exclusive list.

While in my series preview I predicted an excellent game from Halladay tonight, no one could have predicted this. It was an unbelievable game for Doc, who hadn't thrown a no-hitter in his illustrious career to this point. But tonight, he was perfect.

Jamie Moyer looks to lead the Phils to a road sweep over the Marlins tomorrow.
