Mark Buehrle Breaks Major League Record For Consecutive Batters Retired

New, comments

Mark Buehrle took a perfect game into the 6th inning Tuesday night in Minnesota to break the major league mark for consecutive batters retired. Buehrle retired the last batter he faced against Baltimore before retiring all 27 he faced against the Rays, then added another 17 to bring the total to 45 consecutive batters before issuing a 2-out walk to Alexi Casilla

Buehrle broke the mark of fellow teammate Bobby Jenks who went a month without allowing a hitter to reach safely in 2007.
