Giants' Yusmeiro Petit Missed Out On Pitching a Perfect Game Last Night in One of the Worst Ways Possible

Giants' Yusmeiro Petit Missed Out On Pitching a Perfect Game Last Night in One of the Worst Ways PossibleKyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports

It is quite possible Yusmeiro Petit didn't sleep at all last night. Why's that? Because Petit came thisclose to throwing the 24th perfect game in MLB history. On a 3-2 count with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, the 28-year-old gave up a looping liner to pinch-hitter Eric Chavez. Peep the hit below.

Petit probably thought about all the other pitches he could've or should've thrown. Why couldn't the ball stay up just a little more, so his teammate Hunter Pence could make a diving catch. Did the cops escorting his wife closer to the field with two outs jinx his chances of making history? See a picture of that in the thumbs. So many questions, so few answers.

Guess saying "you'll get 'em next time" won't work here, right?
