Phil Humber Throws Perfect Game

They kept coming, and he kept knocking them down. Chicago White Sox pitcher Phil Humber took the Seattle Mariners to task Saturday, pitching the first perfect game the major leagues have seen in nearly two years. The third perfect game in White Sox history, the team won 4–0. “This is awesome,” said Humber, a former New York Met who had surgery on his elbow seven years ago. “I’m so thankful.” Humber has also pitched for the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals, and his was only the 21st perfect game in major-league history.
