I feel like I’m trampling on David Pinto’s in-game-update turf, but Mark Buehrle is perfect through seven innings against the Rays.
UPDATE: Perfect through eight . . .
UPDATE: And he did it!! I didn’t see it, but I was told he was saved by a spectacular catch by DeWayne Wise in center off the bat of Gabe Kapler. Must get to TV . . .
Congratulations Mark Buehrle! One of my favorite pitchers in the game pulls off the perfecto!
How about that!
UPDATE: Reader RickyB relates the catch for those of us who missed it:
MLB.com had a live look-in free, so I got to watch the top of the ninth. The catch was unbelievable! Wise robbed a homer, and as he was falling back to earth, the ball started coming out of his glove. He grabbed it with his bare hand as he fell to the ground. Unreal!
