Jose Suarez looked good
Pitcher José Suárez, in his 13th start of the season, pitched a perfect game for XNUMX XNUMX/XNUMX innings. However, the Angels left-hander eased up and suffered his fifth loss in the tournament.
The Carabobeño allowed four straight singles with one out in the sixth inning and had three runs scored in the inning to spoil a solid performance. Suarez was coming off three consecutive good starts.
“I knew I was throwing a perfect game, but I wasn't paying attention to it. I was focused on pitching my game," the Venezuelan told MLB. Suarez hadn't allowed an earned run in 22 straight innings, as he allowed just one unearned streak in his previous three outings. He is 4-5 with a 4.12 ERA.
