King Felix Is Perfect


Source: FanGraphs

27 batters faced, 12 strikeouts, 15 other outs.

In June, I put Matt Cain’s perfect game in historical perspective. This one by Felix Hernandez might not have matched Cain’s strikeout total, but it’s still one of the great single game pitching performances of all time.

Hats off to King Felix, who is more than deserving of the nickname.

If Larry Bernandez throws a perfect game, then I will be impressed.
