Tigers’ Armando Galarraga Robbed of Perfect Game

Armando Galarraga of the Detroit Tigers nearly became the 21st pitcher in Major League history to throw a perfect game. He pitched 8.2 perfect innings, but lost the perfect game after an infield hit by the 27th batter.

Rookie Jason Donald hit a ground ball to first baseman Miguel Cabrera, who tossed to Galarraga, but first base umpire Jim Joyce called Donald safe, ending the perfect game and no-hitter. Joyce later issued a direct apology to Galarraga, saying that the call was incorrect
