Mark Buehrle: PERFECT!

Not only the 16th modern perfect game in history, but considering that his other no-hit game involved facing exactly 27 batters (he picked off Sammy Sosa, whom he had walked), Mark is the first player in Major League history with two no-hit games facing the minimum 27 batters.  This was all thanks to one of the greatest situation catches in the outfied you are ever likely to see as DeWayne Wise preserved the perfect game, no-hitter, and the shut out all at once with a home run robbing catch to lead off the ninth inning (out #25) that needs to be seen to be believed.

By far and away:  the greatest pitching performance I have seen from my Sox in my lifetime.

To quote the Hawk:    MERCY!! … yes … Yes … YEs … YESSSSS!!!
