Philip Humber tosses Perfect game
Chicago White Sox right handed starter Philip Humber made history on Saturday afternoon. He pitched a perfect game in the Chicago White Sox 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Humber threw 96 pitches and had 9 strikeouts in the outing.
The game ended on a check swing on a 3-2 count from Mariners pinch hitter Brendan Ryan, who was called out swinging by home plate umpire Brian Runge and thrown out at first after a dropped third strike.
Philip Humber only has 29 career starts and 11 career wins. Both are second fewest for pitchers throwing a perfect game. Charlie Robertson also of the White Sox threw a perfect game on April 30, 1922 in only his fourth career start, it was his second career win.
The perfect game was the 21st in league history and the third in White Sox team history; the last came from Mark Buehrle on July 23, 2009.
