5-year anniversary of Braden’s perfect game

The Oakland Athletics’ Dallas Braden threw the majors’ 19th perfect game, five years ago today.

Braden on May 9, 2010 – Mother’s Day – retired each of the 27 Tampa Bay Rays he faced during a 4-0 win at Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum. Most of the outs were routine, but Braden’s no-no was aided by several great plays by third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff.
