Did You Know…

On September 2, 2001, Mike Mussina retired the first 26 Red Sox batters before Carl Everett lined a two-strike pitch to left-center for a single to end his bid for a perfect game, but Mussina retired the next hitter to win the game 1-0.  The losing pitcher was David Cone, who had pitched a perfect game on July 18, 1999, against Montreal.  If not for Everett’s hit, Cone would have become the only player to both win and lose a perfect game.
