So much for a perfect game. Pitcher Armando Galarraga of the Detroit Tigers was robbed of issuing 27 consecutive outs by an official. Jim Joyce, the first place umpire, admittedly made a premature call that tarnished Galarraga’s perfect game. This falls under the lines of “You gotta shi kidding me!”
If you’re a Tiger fan, you’ve got to be the least bit disappointed. The ground ball became the flash point of not only the game, but perhaps the season to boot. The good news is the Tigers did beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0. Not for nothing, but Bud Selig needs to step up and get this mess settled once and for all.
