Robinson Cano Ends Bartolo Colon’s Perfect Game Bid In Seventh (Video)

Bartolo Colon was seven outs away from perfection Wednesday night before Robinson Cano came to the plate for the Seattle Mariners.

Cano drove a 2-2 fastball to left field for a single in the seventh inning, ending Colon’s bid to become the 24th pitcher in MLB history to throw a perfect game.

Colon, who signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the New York Mets before the season, had thrown just 84 pitches before Cano’s single. Colon did get the win, though, as he’s now 9-8 with a 4.03 ERA this season.

Johan Santana became the first Mets pitcher to throw a perfect game back in 2012. Safeco Field has hosted two perfect games in 15 years, thrown by Philip Humber and Felix Hernandez.
