Before Roy Halladay threw a perfect game last night in the Philadelphia Phillies' 1-0 victory over the Florida Marlins, Orioles starter Kevin Millwood had been the last Phillies' pitcher to throw a no-hitter.
Millwood's no-hitter came on April 27, 2003 versus the San Francisco Giants, also in a 1-0 Phillies' win.
"Yeah, its one of those moments in life, you can always pull up the memories and remember a lot of things about it," he said.
Millwood was at dinner last night when somebody at his table checked his phone and found out what Halladay had done. Asked for his reaction, Millwood was his typical stoic self.
"I'm happy for him," Millwood said. "I think it's cool when anybody does something like that, but my reaction was 'Oh that's cool, good for him', then I went on to eating my steak. It didn't change my night or anything."
