Clippers’ Germano throws perfect game at Syracuse
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Justin Germano threw a perfect game for the Columbus Clippers in a 3-0 win over the Syracuse Chiefs on Tuesday night.
Germano, who has shuffled between the rotation and bullpen, got the International League's first nine-inning perfect game since 2003. The right-hander's curve dominated from the first inning in his fifth start of the season and he finished with seven strikeouts.
He told Syracuse.com that he made a recent grip adjustment that boosted its speed from 68-70 mph into the upper 70s range. At the end of the game, his teammates doused him in shaving cream and beer.
Germano has appeared in 79 major league games for San Diego, Cincinnati and Cleveland _ including nine for the Indians this year.
