You might recall that Chicago White Sox pitcher Philip Humber threw a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners last Saturday afternoon.
Tonight, Humber was far from perfect against the Boston Red Sox. In five innings, Humber gave up nine runs on eight hits while issuing three walks. Humber surrendered a grand slam to Kevin Youkilis while giving up two homeruns to Jarrod Saltalamacchia. It just goes to show that in baseball you can go from perfection to pitiful from one outing to the next.
Interestingly, the Red Sox have won four straight games since blowing a 9-0 lead against the New York Yankees last Saturday.
