Halladay wins NL Cy Young unanimously
Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay was a unanimous winner of the National League Cy Young Award in his first season in the league, capping a remarkable year in which he threw both a regular-season perfect game and a postseason no-hitter.
Halladay received all 32 first-place votes in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, becoming just the fifth pitcher to win the award in both leagues, joining Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson and Gaylord Perry; Halladay previously won in the AL in 2003 while pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays.
St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright was a distant runner-up, receiving 28 second-place votes, while Colorado's Ubaldo Jimenez finished third.
Halladay, 33, went 21-10 with a 2.44 ERA in 33 starts for the Phillies, leading the league in wins, innings pitched, complete games and shutouts. He threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins in May, and a no-hitter in Game 1 of the Division Series against the Cincinnati Reds.
