Back-to-back perfect games? Almost

One week after throwing Nippon Professional Baseball’s first perfect game in 28 years, Roki Sasaki nearly did it again.

The Chiba Lotte right-hander struck out 14 over eight perfect innings against Nippon before being pulled. The 20-year-old struck out the side in the eighth inning while reaching 101 mph, but was lifted with the score tied 0-0 after throwing 102 pitches. Chiba Lotte would go on to lose the game, 1-0, in 10 innings.
