<img src=Angels" data-canon="Los Angeles Angels" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" id="shortcode0"> starting pitcher Ervin Santana had a perfect game through 6 2/3 innings Saturday night against the Diamondbacks. He retired the first 20 batters he faced before Justin Upton singled to center to break up the perfect game and no-hitter in one fell swoop.
That hit would be the only one Santana would allow all game, as he threw a shutout in a 2-0 Angels win.
Santana entered the game with a 5.74 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and an AL-high 18 home runs allowed this season, but we know he's plenty capable of a gem during any given start. He has 13 career complete games with six of those being shutouts. He also has one career no-hitter, which he threw July 27 of last season.
There have only been 22 perfect games in Major League Baseball history, but two of those (Philip Humber and Matt Cain) have already come this season. There has only been one Angels perfect game, and that was courtesy of Mike Witt on September 30, 1984. Jered Weaver threw the last Angels' no-hitter earlier this season.
