Dennis Martinez Perfect Game Box Score



Did you know that this was the sixth National League perfect game and the first ever thrown by a Latin American pitcher from either league?

During the 1998 season Dennis "El Presidente" Martinez passed Juan Marichal for winningest Latin American pitcher of all time.

On July 26, 1991, just two days earlier, Mark Gardner of the Montreal Expos pitched nine-innings of no-hit baseball against the Dodgers then lost in the tenth inning.
