Struggling New York Yankees starting pitcher A.J. Burnett slammed his hands against the Yankee clubhouse doors on Saturday in an another failed attempt to help his team.
Detroit Starting Pitcher Armando Galarraga covered first base, took the throw from second in time to make the 27th straight out in the 9th inning to complete his perfect game… except that Umpire Jim Joyce blew the call, allowing Cleveland’s Jason Donald to be ruled safe, despite needing an extra stride to hit the bag.
