Halladay tops historic season with Cy Young award

Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies has been awarded the National League Cy Young award, given to the league's best pitcher.

Besides leading the league in victories, Halladay also pitched a perfect game during the regular season and a no-hitter in the playoffs against the Reds.  With that outing he became only the second pitcher in history to pitch a post-season no-hitter.

Halladay"s also the fifth pitcher in history to win a Cy Young award in both leagues - he won for the American League's Toronto Blue Jays in 2003.
