At least one moment from the Oakland A’s 2023 season is in the record books.

On Wednesday night, New York Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán pitched the 24th no-hit perfect game in Major League history. He also became the first Dominican Republic-born pitcher to allow no hits and no walks. And it only took him on 99 pitches in the Yankees’ 11-0 victors over the Athletics.

According to the Yankees and ESPN, Germán’s perfect game:

  • Was the fourth in team franchise history
  • Was the first thrown by a Latino-born pitcher in franchise history
  • Was the first individual no-hitter against the Oakland A’s since Nolan Ryan did it in 1990
  • Was the first time a player achieved that feat after previously giving up 10 or more runs in their previous start

The biggest threat to Germán perfect game came in the fourth inning when he hit a line-drive to right field’s warning track. Giancarlo Stanton, however, secured the out. By the end of the night though, 77 of Germán’s 99 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Through his interpreter, Germán said this game is going to be something he remembers forever.

After the game, A’s manager Mark Kotsay tipped his cap to the Yankees pitcher.

“The kid did an amazing job of keeping us off balance all night and we didn’t do a good job of making an adjustment,” Kotsay told reporters.

When was the last no-hit perfect game?

It’s been over 10 years since fans witnessed a perfect game in MLB.

The last time it happened was on Aug. 15, 2012, when Seattle’s Felix Hernandez pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. That was a first in Mariners’ franchise history.
