On this date in Mariners history — perfection for Felix Hernandez

On this day in 2012, Felix Hernandez threw the 23rd perfect game in Major League baseball history. He retired all 27 batters he faced on 113 pitches, recording 12 strikeouts. He had only three 3-ball counts all game. Jesus Montero knocked in the game’s only run with a 2-out, RBI single in the 3rd inning to score Brendan Ryan. It was the third no-hitter in 2012 at Safeco Field, the most in one venue since 1917.

I forgot that both Eric Thames and Jesus Montero were a part of that masterpiece.

Here’s video of all 27 outs (hopefully this video works better).
