Mark Buehrle was doing it again!

Call your husband. Call your wife. Call your kids. Call your old man. Mark Buehrle pitched almost six perfect innings for the White Sox at Minnesota until walking a man with two out in the sixth. On the way he has broken a Major League record for innings pitched without a base runner--45 something.

Oops, he just lost the no-hitter. Base hit with two out. Oops, there goes the shut-out.

Minnesota fans gave him a standing ovation, in a display of great class. Chicago may never see such a performance again.
