Last Perfect Game Note

Felix Hernandez threw the first perfect game ever pitched in the month of August.

I love this game.

The only person as happy as Felix Hernandez?

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.

Philip Humber Throws the 21st Perfect Game in MLB History

Humber’s line: 9 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 96 pitches

The last perfect games before Humber’s was thrown by Roy Halladay of the Phillies over the Marlins on May 29, 2010.

The last White Sox perfect game was thrown against the Rays by Mark Buehrle on July 23, 2009. The only other Sox perfecto was thrown by Charlie Robertson against the Tigers on April 30, 1922.

It’s the 3rd no-hitter thrown against the Mariners.
