MIAMI -- Stoic as always, Roy Halladay's expression never changed.Until the end, that is.Until there was history -- a perfect game, the marquee performance of his All-Star career.The Philadelphia Phillies' ace threw the 20th perfect game in major league history, beating the Florida Marlins 1-0 on Saturday night.
Perfect Halladay Weekend
• Roy Halladay is the fifth pitcher to win a Cy Young and also throw a perfect game.
• Halladay's first career win came against the Tigers on Sept. 27, 1998, when he came within one out of throwing a no-hitter before it was broken up by a Bobby Higginson home run.
• Oakland's Dallas Braden threw a perfect game on May 9. The only other season with two perfect games was 1880: Lee Richmond (June 12) and John Montgomery Ward (June 17).
• Of the 20 perfect games thrown in baseball history, three have come in the last two seasons.
• The Phillies are the fifth team to have had two perfect games in their history. Jim Bunning threw Philadelphia's other one on June 21, 1964 vs. the Mets.
• Kevin Milwood threw the Phillies' last no-hitter on April 27, 2003 against the Giants.
Phillies 3B Placido Polanco (bruised left elbow) was sidelined again, Castro getting the call to start for the second straight night. Polanco is expected to undergo an MRI exam on Sunday to see if the problem is more serious than originally thought.
