Hughes and Patterson are perfect

Phil Hughes and Scott Patterson were among four Yankees pitchers who combined on a rain-shortened perfect game yesterday.

They combined with Kei Igawa and Billy Traber to retire the first 15 Blue Jays batters they faced before the game was ultimately called before the start of the sixth inning.

Hughes retired all three batters he faced in the first inning, and was followed by Scott Patterson, who struck out one of three batters he faced in the second.

Kei Igawa (!!!) struck out two through two innings, and Billy Traber struck out the side to finish the game.

Here’s how other Thunder alums fared in the game…

Alberto Gonzalez: 0-2
Juan Miranda: 0-0, BB
Shelley Duncan: 2-2, R, 2B, RBI
Colin Curtis: 0-0
Melky Cabrera: 1-1, RBI
Justin Christian: 0-1
