Big ups to Dallas Braden, for throwing the most recent perfect game in the universe. Just the 19th time in baseball history a perfect game has been tossed.
Braden tossed 109 pitches, striking out just 6 batters in the 9 inning performance. As if it isn't an accomplishment as is, he did so against the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays. Last Mother's Day, Braden didn't quite have the same luck. He was hit by a line drive off the bat of Vernon Wells and exited the game early.
Sadly, Braden's performance was only seen in person by 12,228, but his grandmother was in attendance to see the feat.
