Twins' Scott Baker Takes Perfect Game Into Ninth

Against the Royals. John Buck broke up the perfect game with a walk in the ninth inning; Mike Sweeney broke up the no-hitter with a pinch-hit single. Baker struck out nine.

The Twins were playing two against the Royals today, and I wanted a spot starter for one of my fantasy teams, so I find myself choosing between Matt Garza, who started the first game, and Baker. I chose poorly.

(I know no one cares about my fantasy teams, but I still thought that was worth mentioning.)
