Mark Buehrle a pitcher for the Chicago White Sox became the 18th person in the history of baseball to throw a perfect game. For those who don’t know what a perfect game is it’s when a pitcher does not allow any base runners. That means no hits, walks, hit batters, or errors. 27 batters up and 27 batters down.

Mark is the second pitcher, in the White Sox organization, to ever pitch a perfect game. The last pitcher for the White Sox to pitch a perfect game was Charlie Robinson in 1922. In the top of the ninth a batter hit a ball that looked like it was going to leave the park but the outfielder leaped and robbed the batter of a homerun to keep the perfect game live. Two more outs and the game was over and Mark with is first perfect game and his second no hitter.
