UPDATE: There goes that. Garcia was able to get Prince Fielder to ground out to Albert Pujols at first base, but walked Casey McGehee and gave up a clean single to Yuniesky Betancourt. Perfect game over. No-hitter over.
9:57 PM: We already had Derek Lowe carry a no-hitter into the seventh inning tonight, but something pretty special is brewing in St. Louis right now.
Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia has a perfect game through seven innings against the Brewers this evening. The Cards lead the game 6-0.
Garcia has eight strikeouts so far, but has been very economical by throwing 51 out of 75 pitches for strikes. MLB’s last perfect game was thrown by Roy Halladay last May 29.
The Brewers will send Prince Fielder, Casey McGehee and Yuniesky Betancourt to the plate in the top of the eighth inning. Stay tuned to see if Garcia can make history.
