Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox just threw the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history. Humber stymied the Seattle Mariners, needing just 97 pitches (68 strikes) to face and retire all 27 hitters at Safeco Field. Humber finished with nine strikeouts.
It was the first no-hitter of the season and the first since May 2010, when Oakland’s Dallas Barden and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay threw perfect games just 20 days apart. Humber is in his 7th season and has spent time with the Mets, Twins, Royals and now the White Sox.
