NEW YORK (AP) - Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies has
unanimously won the NL Cy Young Award, making him the fifth pitcher
to earn the honor in both leagues.
Halladay pitched a perfect game in May and then threw a
no-hitter in the playoffs. In his first season with the Phillies,
he led the NL with 21 wins and topped the majors in innings,
shutouts and complete games.
Halladay received all 32 first-place votes in results released
Tuesday by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
Adam Wainwright of St. Louis was second and Ubaldo Jimenez of
Colorado was third. San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum, who won the
past two NL Cy Youngs, finished 11th.
