Newly acquired Philadelphia Phillies ace, Roy Halladay, joined an elite group with the 20th perfect game in MLB history today against the Florida Marlins.

The perfect showing was complimented with 11 strikeouts and a whole bunch of whiffs. Halladay improves to 7-3 on the season while the Phillies will move two games above the Braves to lead the division. 

Strangely, this is the second perfect game this season; Dallas Braden was perfect against the Tampa Bay Rays on May, 9th. 

Halladay and Braden join Mark Buehrle and Randy Johnson as the only four pitchers to throw a perfect game since 1999. 

The Philadelphia Phillies have been thrilled to see Roy Halladay throw five complete games this season including tonight’s perfect game. His pitch count has been high but Halladay obviously isn’t having issues with his arm. 

Halladay has lowered his era to 1.99 and his WHIP to 0.99. Can Roy Halladay become one of the elite few to win the Cy Young award in both the American and National leagues?
