Roy Halladay threw a perfect game Saturday night against the Marlins as the Phillies took home a 1-0 victory.

He became just the 10th Phillies pitcher to throw a no-hitter and the second to throw a perfect game.

Halladay is the 20th pitcher in MLB history and the second this season to throw a perfect game. He struck out 11 to improve to 7-3 with a 1.99 ERA on the season.

The last Phillies pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Kevin Millwood on April 27, 2003. The last (and only) to throw a perfect game was Jim Bunning on June 21, 1964.
