Jays take first two against O's,HALLDAY Perfect in Phillie

Roy Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB history on Saturday evening.Halladay struck out 11 out of the 27 batters he faced while getting only one run of support.Ronny Paulino grounded out to end the game as Juan Castro threw to first to make the out. In Roy's first start in the MLB you knew he was going to be something special when with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth he was one out away from a no-hitter.Unfortunately the batter hit a home run and Halladay could not get it. 153 wins later Roy completes a better feat then a no-hitter with a perfect game.Halladay was mobbed from the whole team but the second the out was made at first Halladay had a catcher named Carlos Ruiz on him. It was the second perfect game in Philadelphia history and the second this season in the MLB.

Aaron Hill and Vernon Wells hit home runs in both Friday nights and Saturdays games as the Jays took both 5-0 and 5-2.Lyle Overbay added 2 home runs on Saturday's game and Shaun Marcum looked spectacular threw 6 innings to notch his fifth win this season on Friday night.
