Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga throws a one-hitter in a 3 – 0 win over Cleveland, but in the eyes of many observers he  has pitched a perfect  game. The only baserunner he gives up comes with two outs in the 9th inning  when Jason Donald is  called safe on an infield hit by umpire Jim Joyce; however, replays show that the throw  from first baseman Miguel  Cabrera to Galarraga beat Donald to the bag. The Tigers starter thus comes  agonizingly close to pitching the third major league perfect game in only a  month.
