Mark Burhle has pitched a Perfect game. He retired ever single hitter that tampa bay brought up to him, putting out 27 batters. This is Mark’s second No Hitter in his career but his first perfect game. I know some of you want to know what the difference between a no hitter and a Perfect game is so I am going to explain that for you. A no hitter is when a pitches does not allow a hit during the complete game. In a no-hitter you can allow walks and you can hit batters, the only thing you can’t do is allow a hit. In a perfect game, no batter reaches a base. So that means it is just ilke a no hitter, yet the pitcher will need to retire all 27 batters in a row. That means it’s 9 123 innings in a row! This Marks the 17th perfect game in MLB history so it is a pretty big deal. Check out Mark’s post game interview below
