Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle pitched a perfect game (no-hitter) on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays.
“I don’t know what to say, it’s unbelievable,” Buehrle said after the game.
The perfect game almost ended with the first batter in the ninth inning, on a deep fly to centerfield. Defensive replacement Dewayne Wise sprinted back to the wall, leaped, and robbed Gabe Kabler of a home run.
It is just the 16th perfect game in Major League Baseball History, and the first in five years. Buehrle already had a no-hitter on his resume and now has added one of the rarest of all baseball feats.
