Perfection!

This just in: White Sox starter Mark Buehrle pitched a perfect game (no hits, no walks, no errors).  The Chisox beat the defending AL Champion Tampa Bay Rays 5-0.

Few pitchers even throw nine full innings anymore.  This is one of the most difficult achievements in any sport. 

Congrats to Buehrle and the Sox!

when i saw it was going on i turned on espn at work (yes, i am fortunate in that way) and they were covering the ninth inning. if you haven't seen how the perfect game was saved with 0 outs in the top of the ninth do yourself a favor and youtube it. it will go down as one of the greatest baseball plays of all time considering what was at stake.

Since you can't (or shouldn't be able to) find MLB content on YouTube, you can find the incredible play here.
