Outfielder Sam Fuld could have been grinding his teeth after his Tampa Bay Rays lost a 1-0 decision after Felix Hernandez showed his Kingship Wednesday with baseballs third perfect game of the season.
But it would have been little more than screaming into the darkness. Fuld chose to embrace the moment.
Felix and (Detroits Justin) Verlander are the two most dominant pitchers in the league, Fuld said. Just like Verlander, Felix just got stronger as the game went longer. You never want to resign yourself to that, but he was as dominant in the ninth inning as he was in the first.
