We all know the Seattle Mariners are starved for offense, well today the Chicago White Sox Philip Humber made them pay. He pitched a perfect game against the Mariners IN Seattle.
The game's pitching matchup featured, Humber (0-0, 1.69 ERA) vs. Mariners RH Blake Beavan (1-1, 2.70 ERA).

Safe to say Humber likes pitching against the M's.
Coming into this game no Mariners player had hit more than one hit against Humber, and Ichiro Suzuki was 0-for-6 against him.
Humber went 1-0 in two starts against Seattle last season, allowing three runs in 14 2/3 innings.
Today he was on fire.

Michael Saunders, Miguel Olivo, and Brendan Ryan all went down in the ninth and made it 27 of 27. A perfect game.
The last out was a full count and he threw a fastball for the ball but Brendan Ryan swung. They threw him out at first.
The final score on Saturday was 4-0 Chicago.

Over the weekend, Philip Humber had the game of his life, throwing the 21st perfect game in baseball history against the Seattle Mariners. While the Mariners have a lousy offense and Safeco Field is a fantastic place to pitch, those factors shouldn’t diminish what Humber accomplished. A lot of good pitchers have faced a lot of lousy offenses over the years, and only 20 men before...
Philip Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball on Saturday, and on Thursday, the Red Sox will likely get to face him in Chicago. The Red Sox, 4-10 on the season after blowing a 9-0 lead to the Yankees on Saturday, travel to Minnesota on Monday and Chicago on Thursday. If Humber pitches on five days' rest, he would host the Red Sox at U.S....
Before Philip Humber, there was Lee Richmond. Humber on Saturday became the 21st pitcher in major league history to throw a perfect game, blanking the Mariners at Safeco Field in Seattle. Baseball's first perfect game, however, took place about 50 miles from Fenway Park. Lee Richmond tossed the first perfect game in baseball history in Worcester, Mass., on June 20, 1880. Richmond...
Going into their West Coast road trip, the White Sox were at .500 and had their sights set on one thing: winning each of the series that they play in.
After they won Friday night’s game behind Adam Dunn’s strong performance, they could secure the upper hand in the first series by notching a win Saturday afternoon.
Luckily for the Sox, their number 5 pitcher Phillip Humber was...

On the plane trip to Seattle, I’m sure no one expected this. Philip Humber, of the Chicago White Sox, took the mound Saturday afternoon and totally blanked the Seattle Mariners. PERFECT GAME!!! This is the first no-hitter of the season and the first perfect game since Roy Halladay threw one on 5/29/10. Humber throws the 21st perfect game in MLB History!
A no-hitter is one of the toughest feats in all of sports. A perfect game is even harder to accomplish. Chicago White Sox starter Philip Humber managed to toss a perfect game on Saturday, though. He threw 96 pitches and struck out nine batters in a 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. Humber is the 21st pitcher in major league history to pitch a perfect game. He...
Phillip Humber Welcome to the week-four waiver wire! As many of you may know, I’ve recently married the woman of my dreams. It was perfect. Our families happily joined us to witness the commitment we were making to each other, at Stone Brewery! All of our guests were able to enjoy beautiful weather, great food and some of the best beers on the planet. Like I...
PHILIP HUMBER: Nice thing for a nice guy.
Add Phil Humber to the list of ex-Mets to throw a no-hitter. Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan seven times, David Cone and Dwight Gooden. Meanwhile, the Mets’ franchise doesn’t have any.
I liked dealing with Humber when he was with the Mets. He was always pleasant to speak with and had a good sense of humor. At the time, I was happy for him when...
Managing editor Dave Cameron makes his weekly appearance on FanGraphs Audio. Topics discussed: Philip Humber’s success, and Don Cooper’s role in it; the SI.com Power Rankings (fueled by FanGraphs WAR), the benefits and limitations of such an exercise; and the new site feature called FanGraphs Guts! and what it tells us about the majors’ current scoring levels.
Let Kate Upton know that Philip Humber is now allowed entrance into the Perfect Club as he retired 27 straight Mariners (here’s a tip: don’t get too close to Dallas Braden in the sauna). That’s only the 21st perfect game in history – surprisingly, as you would’ve thought at least that many pitchers would have thrown perfect games against the Mariners last year. Kudos...
This week had many great performances, and I was going to choose New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson’s three home run game against the Minnesota Twins. Then, there was the Yankees nine-run comeback against the Red Sox on Saturday. However, Philip Humber gets the nod with his perfect game against the Seattle Mariners. 1
