Phil Humber: Throws Perfect Game Saturday

Posted on April 21, 2012 at 3:27 PM


Humber threw a perfect game against the Mariners on Saturday to pick up his first win of the season.


Humber struck out nine in the effort, and displayed excellent control throughout, requiring just 96 pitches to tally 27 outs. He did not reach a three-ball count in this one until Michael Saunders to lead off the ninth, and that at-bat ended with three consecutive strikes. Humber was inconsistent in 2011, which was his first full season, but Saturday's outing was a sign of what he is capable of if he can retain his poise.
