Roy Halladay provided one of the great pitching performances in postseason history last year when he no hit the Reds in the NLDS. It was just the second no hitter ever in the postseason. Tonight, he’ll look to continue his dominance over the Reds as the Phillies face Cincy in the third of a four game series at Citizens Bank Park.
Halladay will opposed by a pitcher who nearly made history of his own in this matchup. Travis Wood took a perfect game into the 9th inning against the Phils last season that was broken up with a Carlos Ruiz double in the ninth inning. Roy Halladay just so happened to be the opposing pitcher that and threw nine innings of shut out ball himself as the Phillies won the game in extra innings.
Before last night, the Reds had lost nine straight games to the Phillies. The game will be shown nationally on ESPN2 tonight at 7PM.
