NY pitcher Domingo German threw a perfect game against Oakland. Also, it is the first perfect game in Major League Baseball in almost 11 years.

German allowed no base runners. That means the A’s did not have a walk or hit. Also, he did not hit any batter. In addition, he pitched all innings for the Yankees as he led them to an 11-0 win against Oakland. The German pitcher struck out nine batters and threw 101 pitches to retire all 27 batters he faced.

According to bookie pay per head sources, German’s perfect game is only the 24th in MLB history. Also, it was the first since Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners had one on August 2012 against the Tampa Bay Rays.

German’s Perfect Game

Donaldson then made the throw to first base to secure the historic victory. The Yankee dugout erupted in celebration as German was mobbed by his teammates on the mound.

The Dominican-born right-hander is the first pitcher from his country to throw a perfect game. Also, he attributed his historical performance to the recent passing of a relative.

According to sources, German’s success was a terrific way to recover from recent setbacks. In his previous two outings, he had given up 17 runs over 5 1/3 innings.

After getting removed from a game against the Toronto Blue Jays for using an unlawful adhesive material, German was issued a 10-game ban by MLB in May for breaking the foreign substance rules.

The Yankees’ victory (44-36) moved them to second place in the American League East, 9.5 games back. With a record of 21-61 thus far this season, Oakland owns the poorest record in the majors.
