UPDATE: He did it!  He did it!  Halladay retired 27 of 27 Marlins hitters and just completed the 20th perfect game in MLB history.  It is the second in Phillies history.

UPDATE: Halladay is now perfect through eight innings with 10 total strikeouts.  He’s up to 103 pitches, but high pitch counts have never really bothered the workhorse right-hander.

8:58pm: Let’s go ahead and reel in some of you folks who are locked in on NBC’s Stanley Cup finals coverage or the NBA Playoffs.  We may have a historic night in south Florida, as Phillies starter Roy Halladay has a perfect game through seven innings against the Marlins. 

He has fanned nine batters without allowing a walk or a hit.  The former Toronto ace has never thrown a no-no, never mind a perfect game.  We’ll have updates as he continues toward history.
