Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in MLB history.
Humber is 29 years of age and had 29 MLB starts before this game. Last year he had a 9-9 record for the White Sox. Humber had 11 wins in the big leagues before his perfect game.
Humber threw 96 pitches in his first win of the season. He had 9 strikeouts in the Sox road win. The White Sox won 4-0 over the Seattle Mariners.
Humber is the seventh pitcher to throw a perfect game on the road.
"He was aggressive in the strike zone," said ESPN analyst Aaron Boone.
"He came to the ballpark just trying to win his first game of the season to keep this team over .500," said ESPN analyst Rick Sutcliffe. "Something like this could not only change the career of this guy but all of a sudden now the White Sox feel pretty good about their ball club."
Humber has been through a lot in his major league career. He was the third overall pick in 2004 by the New York Mets. He was traded to the Minnesota Twins in the Johan Santana deal. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2005, according to NBC 5 Chicago.
"This is awesome," said Humber, according to NBC 5 Chicago. "I'm so thankful."
