“Roy Halladay allowed a run and five hits over seven innings and earned a 7-1 victory over the Marlins, lifting his career won-lost record to 190-92 (.674). Halladay became only the 10th pitcher in major-league history to reach the 190-wins mark with 92-or-fewer losses. The only other pitchers to do that in the post-World War II era were Whitey Ford in 1963 (who was 190-74), Juan Marichal in 1969 (190-87) and Pedro Martinez in 2005 (190-78).”
I’m guessing the six pitchers to achieve this feat before the World War II era had nicknames like Old Hoss, Three Fingers, Old Pete and Big Train.
Freddy Galvis had a memorable night. The rookie has two of the team’s seven extra-base hits and four of the team’s 15 RBIs through five games.
