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....
According to the raw neutrality of the win probability chart, the Seattle Mariners actually had a chance to win the game last Saturday:
But it did not know — nor did the players know — what day it was. A.J. Pierzynski did not realize the significance of that first pitch, sailing wide to his glove side. Philip Humber may have even felt a twinge of frustration...
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...

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...
This weekend, after Philip Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in history I wondered to myself what the record was for fewest pitches in a complete game. Well, the answer brought up one of the most interesting games in history in my opinion, and I’m going to tell you about it. In 1944, the Cincinnati [...]
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...

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
