Video: Last out of the Philip Humber perfect game against the Seattle Mariners

Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners this afternoon. Check out the videos below of the last at-bat by Mariners' Brendan Ryan and the controversial last out of the game.

The umpire, Brian Runge, called Ryan out when Ryan tried to check his swing on a 3-2 count. Judge for yourself if the umpire made the right call. The perfect game would have been ruined if Ryan had walked. The pitch was definitely not a strike as it was low and away.

The White Sox won 4-0 and will try to go for the sweep tomorrow afternoon in Seattle.

Update: Major League Baseball keeps on deleting most of the videos on YouTube so these are the only videos that works and are still online.

checked swing

The ump was staring at the hitter, the check swing was enough to get rung up. The batter before Ryan basically had an 84 mph batting practice ball and blew the chance. Strike 3 for Ryan for the game, better luck tomorrow.

I think it was a checked swing and the ump just didn't want to be "jim Joyce" all over again.

It would still be a no hitter though if he got the next guy out!!!

Yeah cheap call. Definitly check swing. Should have asked 1st base Ump. I hate the check swing call, needs to be re-defined.

Pause it at 2:53. Thre are several frames during that second. You can see taht the batter clearly went around and had his bat in front of the plate. What a great call by the umpire.
