Roy Halladay wins second Cy Young

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Roy Halladay added another victory to an almost perfect season, unanimously winning the NL Cy Young Award on Tuesday and becoming the fifth pitcher to earn the honor in both leagues.

The Philadelphia Phillies ace was an easy choice after leading the league with 21 wins and topping the majors in innings, shutouts and complete games.

Acquired by the Phillies from Toronto last December and immediately given a $60 million, three-year contract extension, Halladay did everything expected of him -- and more.

Halladay threw a perfect game at Florida on May 29, firmly stamping this season as the Year of the Pitcher, then tossed a perfect game against Cincinnati in his playoff debut.

Halladay received all 32 first-place votes in results released by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Adam Wainwright of St. Louis was second and Ubaldo of Colorado was third. Giants ace Tim Lincecum, who won the past two NL Cy Youngs, finished 11th.
