Felix Hernandez Throws Perfect Game
While you were cooped up in your office, watching the clock tick by and playing on your iPhone in the restroom stall, Felix Hernandez went to work. And oh, buddy, did he work. 
Going up against the surging Tampa Bay Rays, Felix Hernandez dominated from the outset, making the Rays batters look like small children as they wildly swung their arms about trying to reach 95 mph fastballs and 86 mph sliders. If you’ve ever wanted to see baseball actually look really, really hard, this would be the game to watch. Except for Hernandez who was swagger personified.
Hernandez went nine innings, facing the minimum of 27 batters, striking out 12 of them, with the Rays only managing to hit five balls into the air. Hernandez threw 77 of 113 pitches for strikes and never needed more than 16 in any one inning.
Here’s the strike zone plot if you’d like to frame it from Brooks Baseball:

With the game, Felix Hernandez lowered his ERA to 2.60 and finished off his league leading fourth shutout. Not only that, but he gave the Mariners a happier memory than the Kevin Millwood-led six pitcher no-hitter from June 8th. 
All hail, King Felix!
