Report: Halladay retires six Yankee batters on two pitches
Updated: March 4, 2010

By ,

New Phillies ace Roy Halladay reportedly needed only two pitches to retire six of the seven Yankee batters he faced in Thursday’s Spring Training opener.

“He was every bit as amazing as we thought he’d be,” Raul Ibanez said of Roy Halladay’s performance. “To go out there and retire 12 batters on one pitch is just sick.”

The only baserunner allowed during Halladay’s 19-inning outing came on a throwing error by Placido Polanco in the first inning. Polanco would later apologize to Halladay and praised his new teammate for an impressive no-pitch performance that killed at least five Yankees.

    Halladay would not accept the apology, however, and with a snap of his fingers, two burly men in suits escorted Polanco was out of the locker room and into a back alley, where he was messily devoured by dogs.
