Perfect Game! Congrats!

Mark Buehrle, who threw a no-hitter in 2007, turned in a perfect game against the Rays on Thursday.

Buehrle nearly lost it twice late. Pat Burrell pulled a double about a foot foul with two outs in the eighth, and Gabe Kapler just missed a homer to lead off the ninth. DeWayne Wise had all day to catch up to Kapler's shot, and he made an excellent leaping grab, only to have the force from hitting the wall knock the ball from his glove, forcing him to grab it again with his barehand. Buehrle becomes the 24th pitcher in major league history with multiple no-hitters. Randy Johnson and Hideo Nomo were the only two to do it since Nolan Ryan retired. Jul. 23 - 4:11 pm et

It wasn't long ago Buehrle couldn't get a paper bag out and had an ERA of 5 something for an entire season. Everybody in Chicago including Windy wanted him traded for a sack of potatoes.

Great Job MB and Congrats!

I'd have loved to have seen that! Congrats.

Wouldn't he look good in a Twins uniform?

Good for him. One of the few Sox a guy can root for. Just gets his job done quickly and efficiently. Something like 2hrs and 3 minutes.

Incredible Job by Buehrle setting an All time Major League record for consecutive batters retired at 45!

And Huge Props to the Classy Twins fans who gave him 2 standing ovations!

Go Twins!

I am late on this but congrats to Buehrle on his perfect game you don't see that too often and it was fun to watch.

To Windy-

Had to have been a joy in chi-town, they have had nothing else to cheer about until then.
