I flipped on Comcast sportsnet a few minutes ago, just to see the Phillies. What I saw was miraculous.
Travis Wood, a player for the Cincinatti Reds whom I have never heard of, is on his way to a perfect game against the Phillies.
First of all, the obvious question- who? Travis Wood before the game is a player I've never heard of. He might be a rookie, he might be a veteran, he might be a callup. I am not a Reds fan (As Jerry Seinfeld might quip at this point "Not that there's anything wrong with that"), so I don't know all aout the Reds farm system
Second of all, the score is still zero to zero. Roy Halladay might also be on the way to a no hitter if Wood loses. It's a win-win situation. Wood gets a perfect game, Halladay gets his second no-hitter.
But I'm just watching the game, and I'll probably update you if Wood wins, or if Halladay wins.
UPDATE- CARLOS RUIZ, INTO THE OUTFIELD! BYE BYE PERFECT GAME! Roy Halladay will be credited with a shutout.
