I'll try.
Extra Innings, runner placed on 2nd base, team error for those of you scoring at home.
Two ground outs and a run is scored. 
Pitcher retired each batter he/she faced, perfect game, but loses.

Great call, GA Umpire, you nailed it.  aWaRd

While not as swashbuckling as Ernie Shore's perfect game for the Red Sox in 1918 - Babe Ruth was the starting pitcher, walked the leadoff batter, gave the ump a shove , got tossed. Ernie came in, picked the runner off first, and retired the next 26 he faced. With the length of games what they are, I would be in favor of keeping that rule and adding it to all levels.....OPINIONS:
