White Sox Vs. Mariners Update: Chicago Pitcher Philip Humber Perfect Through 5 Innings

The Chicago White Sox lead the Seattle Mariners 3-0 through five innings at Safeco Field and starting pitcher Philip Humber is dominating. Headed into the bottom of the sixth inning, Humber has a perfect game going.

The last White Sox starter to throw a perfect game was Mark Buehrle on July 23, 2009. I was there.

Paul Konerko hit career homer No. 398 in the second inning. Konerko almost had No. 399 but the ball bounced off the left field fence. Chicago catcher A.J. Pierzynski also drove in a run in the third inning.

The White Sox are looking to improve to 8-6 on the season.
