Buehrle Sets New Record For Consecutive Batters Retired
He retired the first 17 tonight. Plus he retired the last batter he faced in the game before the perfect game. That makes 45 straight batters retired. That breaks the record of 41 held by Jim Barr and Bobby Jenks. But it was reported in several places just about as soon as it happened. I was not first.
