Felix Hernadez of the Seattle pitched the third perfect game of the season and sixth no-hitter in beating Tampa Bay 1-0. Seattle becomes the first team in major league history to throw a perfect and have one thrown at them in the same season. Chicago White Sox's Phil Humber nailed the Mariners back in April. Tampa Bay was victimized in this fashion for third time in the last four years. Dallas Braden set the Rays down in 2010 and Mark Buehrle victimized them in 2009. It was also the third perfect game of the season, a first, and the 23th in MLB history with 12 of them coming in the last 25 seasons.

Scherzer improved his record to 12-6.

Baltimore allows only five hits to Detroit. The only problem was three of them left the ballpark. A solo shot by Miguel Cabrera in the first and a pair of two run shots by Prince Fielder gave Detroit a 5-1 win over Baltimore. Fielder's first shot was a 462 foot bomb to right center to tie the game at 3-3. His other homer came in the eighth and down the right fieid line off lefthander Darren O'Day. Justin Verlander struggled for six innings walking four batters and giving up a two run homer to Matt Weiter in the fifth on a fastball Verlander got up in the strike zone and Weiter sent it up, up, and away. Joaquin Benoit got the win in relief.

Detroit starter Doug Fister got a little too cozy after being handed a five run first inning lead. A solo home run by Chris Davis, an RBI double by Nick Markasis, and two run double by J.J. Hardy in the second immediately sliced the lead to 5-4. A two out two run triple by Nate McLouth and single by Davis in the fourth gave Baltimore a 7-5 lead and eventual win. Oriole starter Wei-Yin Chen, who got roughed up for five first inning runs, went five innings and got the win. Fister falls to 7-8.

Max Scherzer strikes out eight hitters enroute to a team leading 13th victory for the season beating Toronto 5-3. The Tigers got their first two runs on bases loaded walks off losing pitcher Ricky Romero who lost his tenth straight start and has a 7.69 ERA in that span. Romero also has the dubiuos distinction of walking at least eight batters without striking out anyone since Colorado's Greg Reynolds who walked eight Philadephia batters on May 28, 2008 according to STATS LLC.

Alex Avila's RBI single in the 11th inning gives Detroit a 3-2 win over Toronto.

A diving catch by Austin Jackson in the top half of the eleventh kept the game tied at 2-2. Joaquin Benoit got the win in relief.
