SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle's Felix Hernandez has long talked of his desire to achieve pitching perfection. He finally accomplished it Wednesday against the Tampa Rays Rays.
It was the third perfect game in baseball this season — a first — joining gems by Chicago's Philip Humber in April and San Francisco's Matt Cain in June.
"I don't have any words to explain this," Hernandez said afterward, speaking on the field to the crowd. "I've been working so hard to throw one and today is for you guys."
