Roy Halladay (13-8) was the starter of the Toronto Blue Jays against the New York Yankees on Friday night at the Rogers Centre.

It was a perfect 5 2/3 innings until Doc, who throws right, walked Yankees catcher Jorge Posada. But the Jays stayed on lead with 4-0 against the Bronx Bombers.

Ramiro Peña, who played shortstop, doubled in the sixth inning. The next two batters, Eric Hinske and Mark Teixeira, both earned a walk. With all bases loaded, Alex Rodriguez was struck out marking Halladay’s sixth strikeout of the night. Three more Yankees followed in the eight and ninth inning.

Doc is known to be a splendid pitcher so it was, perhaps it still is, quite a question why the Yankees chose Joba Chamberlain as the Bombers’ starter. Not that Joba couldn’t win for his team, but he doesn’t guarantee a perfect game. Joba never had one compared to Halladay who holds five complete games before Friday night.

The Yankees sent five pitchers to the mound while there was only one Blue Bird.

Halladay is one dominating Blue Bird and he proved it once again as he closed what he started with 9 up, 9 down in the last three innings. Doc summed it to 21 up, 21 down with 9 strikeouts. Roy Halladay now holds a 14-8 record this season.

The Jays' bullpen had an early Labour Day observed and Roy Halladay sealed the  game with 6-0 win against the New York Yankees.
