Mark Buehrle of the Chicago White Sox tosses a perfect game in a 5-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field. The White Sox offense is paced by Josh Field, who hits a grand slam in the second inning. Buehrle had previously thrown a no-hitter and had six strikeouts. The big play came in the ninth inning when Dewayne Wise robbed Gabe Kapler of a home run to preserve Buhrle’s bid at history.
