30343Re:: MLB8 perfect game...or not
- 25 SepI think the perfect-game has been defined to parallel a no-hitter. i.e. it doesn't only relate to a single pitcher.
As much is implied by this Wiki paragraph - "Although it is possible for multiple pitchers to combine for a perfect game, to date, every major league perfect game has been thrown by a single pitcher."
That is interesting because it seems to imply that a pitcher on course for a perfect game is not often withdrawn to have the game closed out by a different pitcher.
Note that a pitcher could pitch 9 perfect innings but if the game went into extra innings and a runner reached base then the perfect designation would be lost.
