White Sox’ Philip Humber Pitches 21st Perfect Game In MLB History
Well, that’s a way to spice up a routine-looking Saturday of baseball: White Sox pitcher Philip Humber finished off the 21st perfect game in MLB history, blanking the Mariners in Seattle, 4-0. The ending was odd, as far as these things go: Seattle’s Brendan Ryan was (possibly wrongly) called out swinging on a check swing on a 3-2 pitch, and the ball got away from White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, but the out was recorded, and that’s all that matters. Here was the scene for the last out:
Nice job, Sox: a rare mount pileup for a regular season game. We approve of the celebration – but not, of course, as much as we approve of Humber’s performance, which featured nine strikeouts – and, as the announcers were fond of pointing out in the aftermath, didn’t even feature many hard-hit balls. It’s not often you can get the home crowd applauding when you play for the visiting team, but Humber fully earned that honor today.
