Roy Halladay was named the NL Player of the Week for the second time this season and fifth in his career. It was also the third time a Phillies has won the award (Jayson Werth). Robinson Cano won the award for the Yankees.
In his only start of the week, Halladay was perfect. His 11-strike out effort in his perfect game against the Marlins was the reason he was honored again. If it weren’t for that game, Troy Glaus of the Braves probably would have won the honors.
Also on TTB, we have honored a hitter and pitcher for players of the month. Halladay was also named our player of the month for pitchers. Despite going 3-2 and having a terrible outing against Boston, Doc had a 2.15 ERA and three complete games, two of them shut outs and one of the shut outs being a perfect game.
Carlos Ruiz got the honors for the hitters. Despite missing time with shoulder injuries, he stood out while the team struggled at it’s worst during the end of the month. He batted .323 in 62 at-bats with two homers and seven RBIs. Ryan Howard was the runner-up for the hitters.
