King Felix Pitches the Mariners 1st Perfect Game

Felix Hernandez became the first pitcher in Mariners’ history to throw a perfect game, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 this afternoon.

Felix’s pitching line:

9.0 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 12 K

This is the second Mariners’ no-hitter this year*, six men combined to throw a no-no on June 8 - a record.

This is also the first time 3 perfect games were thrown in the same season. Matt Cain threw a perfect on June 13, with 14 Ks - a major league record. Philip Humber threw a perfect game against the Mariners on April 21. (This marks the first time that a team was the victim of a perfect game and then won a perfect game in the same season.)

* Both no-hitters were won 1-0 highlighting the Mariners’ offensive woes.
