So close: Yu Darvish’s perfect game broken up on final outon April 3rd, 2013 at 6:52 AM
On 110 pitches, Darvish retired the first 26 batters that the Houston Astros sent to the plate, but he was no match for the lethal Gonzalez. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Gonzalez smacked a 91-mph 4-seam fastball that went thru Yu’s legs, and that was that.
At least he’s not alone in his almost perfect game – Darvish becomes the 11th pitcher in MLB history to lose a perfect game with 26 outs.
