Here is a scenario that I don't think  has happened ever in a MLB game but let's see who knows the answer. I will post the answer after the Angel game tonight.

 

Billy Bob of the Atlanta Beavers is throwing a perfect game into the 7th inning . With two outs in the 7th, a ball is hit to the left fielder and dropped for an error. Billy Bob retires the next next 7 batters in a row and is credited with a perfect game. The final box score looks like this

 

                 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0  R  H   E

Hens        0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0  0   0   2

Beavers   0 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 x     3   8   1 

 

How is this possible that he gets credit for a perfect game?

Again, not looking at any of the above responses.

 

The only reason can be that the fly ball was in foul territory and the batter never reached base.

ANSWER

 

 

OK so I think the answer was easy on this one as most got it right away. The left fielder dropped a ball in foul territory and was charged with an error. This is the only situation that does not nullify a perfect game. If he dropped the fly ball and threw the runner out at 2nd the perfect game would still be over because the batter had reached base safely before being thrown out. 

 

Here is more info on the Perfect game from Wikipedia

I need to come up with more challenging ones. Well hopefully it at least made you think a little.
