This is the face of perfection:
The Seattle Mariner's Felix Hernandez is now a part of baseball lore, joining 22 others when he threw a perfect game in a 1-0 win against the Tampa Bay Rays, this afternoon.
That means Hernandez retired 27 batters in a row, throwing 113 pitches, 77 of them strikes. No one got on base.
What's incredible is that this is the third perfect game this season. USA Today reports:
The most valuable player of this year's All Star Game has been suspended for 50 games, Major League Baseball announced today.
Melky Cabrera, MLB tweeted, tested positive for testosterone and the suspension knocks him out for the rest of the season.
