Felix Hernandez Tosses Perfect Game

Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners threw a no-hitter Wednesday, retiring all 27 batters he faced and striking out 12 en route to his team’s 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  His performance marks only the 23rd perfect game all time, but already the third this season.  Phillip Humber of the Chicago White Sox and Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants each tossed perfect games in April and June respectively.
