White Sox pitcher Phil Humber throws first perfect game of baseball season
Phil Humber threw the first perfect game of the MLB season and the first in nearly 2 years, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
Today’s feat was the 21st perfect game and first since Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay did the same against the Florida Marlins on May 29, 2010. Humber is the third pitcher in White Sox’s history to throw a perfect game, joining Mark Buehrle and Charles Robertson.
Not bad for the guy drafted No. 3 overall by the New York Mets in 2004, one pick after Justin Verlander went to the Detroit Tigers, and who had Tommy John surgery before his career even started.
