Mark Buehrle pitches perfect game!

Not a single base runner! No runs, not hits, no walks, no errors. An incredible catch by center


fielder Dwayne Wise makes it possible.

The last perfect game in Major League Baseball was pitched by Randy Johnson of the
Arizona Diamondbacks against the Atlanta Braves on May 18, 2004 with
the Diamondbacks winning 2-0.
Today, it carried the White Sox to a 5-to-0 win.

Go Sox!

Post game Mark said he threw mostly change-ups and curve balls; few fast balls or cutters. He threw 76 strikes out of 116 pitches. (Thankfully Ozzie didn't yank him in the eighth inning because he had exceeded 100 pitches.)

How great it obliterates the news about a former White Sox pitcher used human growth hormone. Buehrle did in by the right way.
