While most Americans were at work, Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle was making quick work of the Tampa Bay Rays, pitching just the 16th perfect game in modern baseball history.
Buehrle, 30, already has a no-hitter on his resume and struck out six Rays while allowing no hits and no walks in Chicago’s 5-0 win. Buehrle moved to 11-3 on the season and now sports a 3.28 ERA.
The last perfect game in the majors was back in 2004 when Randy Johnson threw one against the Braves.
