Encore Game on Fox Sports Florida
History will note that on May 29, 2010, Roy Halladay tossed the 20th perfect game ever in the Major Leagues. Halladay’s performance for the ages came at the expense of the Marlins, as the Phillies won 1-0.
What occurred the next day has pretty much been forgotten. There wasn’t anything historical, but what took place still was impressive.
The Marlins rebounded from being blanked by Halladay by posting a 1-0 win of their own. Anibal Sanchez, who no-hit Arizona as a rookie in 2006, combined with Taylor Tankersley, Clay Hensley and Leo Nunez for the shutout. Sanchez scattered three hits, and the Phillies managed just four all afternoon.
Marlins fans have a chance to revisit that gem at noon on Wednesday as part of Fox Sports Florida’s Encore Games package.
This May 30 game matched Sanchez against veteran Jamie Moyer, who has enjoyed years of success against Florida.
The Marlins needed six hits to win the game.
The Encore Games package is a reminder that Spring Training is swiftly approaching. Marlins pitchers and catchers begin workouts at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., on Feb. 18. Full-squad workouts start on Feb. 22.
