Happy Halladay

After over a decade in the Major Leagues, Roy Halladay finally made his first postseason start last night, and boy did he make it a good one. He threw his second no-hitter of the season (his first being his perfect game on May 29) and just the second no-hitter in postseason history (the first being Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series).

Not only that, but he was just one 5th inning 2-out walk to Jay Bruce away from being the first person to threw two perfect games in their career, let alone in one season. As it is, he becomes just the fifth player to throw two no-hitters in a season.

The catcher Ruiz makes a great play on the last out to seal the deal. Take a look at the MLB page for video highlights.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
