St. Louis Cardinals Minor Leaguer Throws A Perfect Game

The St. Louis Cardinals couldn't keep the Pittsburgh Pirates off the board Wednesday night, but the Palm Beach Cardinals, in the high-A Florida State League, got a perfect game out of their own starter. The unlikely owner of baseball's most recent perfecto is Chris Corrigan, who improves to 4-8 with an ERA of 4.02 after striking out nine of the 27 batters he faced. 2012 draftee James Ramsey, struggling in his pro debut, backed Corrigan with two doubles and a walk.

Corrigan, 24, was probably not on your radar before this—he was a 30th-round pick in 2009, and spent much of last season in the Palm Beach bullpen before being moved into the rotation this year. Here's how anonymous he is: Outside the Daily Farm Report, Future Redbirds appears to have never written about him.

I don't know if he's got a major league future—it looks like his strikeout rate has, weirdly enough, finally gone up after he moved into the rotation—but this much is certain: Future Redbirds will be writing about him tomorrow.
