Halladay is pitching superbly at the moment
Superb is an understatement.
15-2 after starting the season 0-2!
Halladay won his 15th straight decision, pitching seven scoreless innings to lead the Toronto Blue Jays over the Baltimore Orioles 10-1 on Sunday.
Halladay (15-2) matched the club record for consecutive wins set by Clemens in 1998 and is the first major league pitcher to win 15 straight decisions
since Clemens won 16 in a row for the New York Yankees in 2001.
The right-hander hasn't lost in 20 starts since April 15 at Yankee Stadium.
Rube Marquard and Tim Keefe share the major league record of winning 19 consecutive decisions. Marquard did it for the New York Giants in 1912 and
Keefe did it for New York in 1888.
*Delgado heating up again*
Delgado hit his AL-leading 30th home run, becoming the first Toronto player to hit 30 or more home runs in seven consecutive seasons.
