MLB postseason gem and more to watch tonight

These days, we all value a doctor we can trust. For an 10-season stretch from 2002-11, there was no one more trusted on the mound than Roy “Doc” Halladay

Over that 10-year span, Halladay made eight All-Star teams, led the league in innings pitched four times, won 20 games three times and is one of only six pitchers in baseball history to win a Cy Young Award in both leagues. 

(Trivia answer: Gaylord Perry, Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson, Roger Clemens and Max Scherzer are the others.)

Halladay won a total of 203 games during his 16-year career in the majors and was elected posthumously to the Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2019. 

Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay, right, is congratulated by catcher Carlos Ruiz after pitching a no-hitter in Game 1 of the 2010 NL Division Series against the Cincinnati Reds.

But perhaps Halladay’s finest moment came in Game 1 of the 2010 National League Division Series when he no-hit the Cincinnati Reds for only the second postseason no-hitter in history. 

MLB will be celebrating that game on its social media platforms today at 7 p.m. ET by replaying Halladay’s masterpiece on its Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.
