Philip Joseph Barzilla (born January 25, 1979) is an American former professional baseball player. A pitcher, Barzilla made his Major League Baseball debut in June 2006 for the Houston Astros. He faced only two batters. Brian Jordan of the Atlanta Braves singled off Barzilla before Todd Pratt flew to center field to end the inning. Barzilla's 1/3rd of an inning is the second shortest career of an Astros pitcher after Larry Yount's appearance in which he was injured whilst warming up on the mound and never threw a pitch.
