Dallas Braden of the Oakland Athletics has a Mother’s Day to remember, throwing a Perfect Game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Athletics win the game 4-0 at the Oakland Coliseum, as Braden had six strikeouts. His mother and grandmother had raised Dallas Braden in nearby Stockton. When he was in high school, his mother died from cancer, leaving just his grandmother, who attended the game. The two shared an emotional embrace after the game.
