Felix Hernandez Perfect Game: Mariners Celebrate After Final Pitch

Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez finally broke through after twice coming close to pitching a no-hitter. He was able to throw a perfect game and strikeout 12 in a 1-0 defeat over the Tampa Bay Rays. So, of course the crowd was very excited to be on the good side of a perfect game.
