San Francisco’s spot starter had previously been best known for being one of only 12 players in MLB history to have lost a no-hitter with two out in the ninth. Now he’s wrestled the consecutive-outs record from Mark Buehrle, who in turn had taken it from another SF Giant, Jim Barr (41).

Petit retires Charlie Culberson for No. 46 and he stands alone. Nobody EVER has had a run like this. A perfect game plus 19 more. Amazing.

… and then the pitcher doubled.
And the record ends, right there, with a double by the pitcher Lyles. Another ovation for Petit. #SFGiants
