Chicago White Sox Pitcher Pitches Perfect Game

SEATTLE — There are good games, and there are great games. Then there are the perfect ones that stick with you for the rest of your life.

Philip Humber will never forget what he accomplished Saturday afternoon. What started with a harmless ground-ball out turned into another out, which turned into another, and another, and another. Twenty-seven outs later, Humber had the 4-0 win over the Mariners. More importantly, he had a perfect game, and his place in the record books.

“I’m thankful — the team played awesome,” said Humber, a look of half-disbelief spread across his face. “The first thing you want to do is get a win, and it was nice to have that last run there, have that four-run lead going into the ninth.

“[Catcher] A.J. [Pierzynski] did a great job, couple of great plays in outfield and just awesome. I don’t even know what to say. I don’t know what Phil Humber is doing in this list. No idea what my name is doing there, but thankful it’s there.”
