(Newser) – San Francisco's Yusmeiro Petit came about a foot short of pitching just the 24th perfect game in Major League Baseball history last night. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Arizona pinch-hitter Eric Chavez hit a single that right-fielder Hunter Pence just missed, reports the Huffington Post, which has a GIF. "Felt like the dream where you just can't run fast enough," Pence tweeted later. You can see more complete video at MLB.com.
