I just wanted to congratulate Chicago White Sox's Mark Beuhrle for pitching a perfect game and DeWayne Wise for his saving catch yesterday. This is pretty significant statistic since this was only the 18h perfect game in Major League Baseball's history. You are talking in over 100 years there had been only 18 of these thrown, damn that is impressive. This is pretty special this age of pitch counts, where most pitchers are limited to a 100 or so pitches which is see them pulled in the late fifth or sixth inning. Mark' pitched 9 innings throwing 116 pitches with no hits or walks and had 6 strike outs, all of the other pitches went for fly or ground balls which resulted in an out at first. Mark will join the list which includes Cy Young, Addie Joss, Charlie Robertson, Don Larsen, Jim Bunning, Sandy Kofax, Catfish Hunter, David Cone, Kenny Rogers, David Wells, and Randy Johnson and a few others. Mark that was a pretty sweet game you pitched last night you earned this praise, and he's a pretty good looking guy ;-)
