[Best Syndication News] Mark Buehrle with the Chicago White Sox pitched a perfect game this past Thursday. Buehrle is the 18th to pitch a perfect game for Major League Baseball. It has been five years since the MLB has seen a perfect pitched game.

President Barack Obama telephoned Buehrle and congratulated him for his achievement. Buehrle spoke at a post-game news conference and said that this was an achievement of a lifetime. Chicago fans celebrated the accomplishment.

Buehrle told the press, "I think it's another thing when you retire and you sit back and you see how many perfect games have been thrown in the history [of the sport] and your name's in there. I think that's when you sit back and kind of be surprised."

Buehrle is a left handed pitcher that has been with the Chicago White Sox since 2000.

The perfect pitch game was almost spoiled by Tampa Bay Devil Rays batter Gabe Kapler when he hit a ball towards the stands but White Sox Outfielder DeWayne Wise leaped next to the stands and caught the ball to make it an out.

The game ended with the White Sox beating the Devil Rays with a score of 5-0.

In the end, the White Sox defeated the Devil Rays 5-0.
