BASEBALL: Perfection in Progress?

Randy Johnson is perfect through 7 innings, with Andruw Jones due up to start the 8th. Johnson's thrown 91 pitches through 7.

UPDATE: Jones flied out to center. Estrada whiffs. Every pitch thrown so far in the 8th is a strike. 1-2 pitch, Drew grounds out. Three outs to go.

Ninth inning, one down as DeRosa grounds out on a 1-2 pitch. Nick Green up, a pinch hitter for Hampton on deck.

Green whiffs on a 1-2 pitch.

1-1 to Eddie Perez. Mets rallying, by the way.

2-2.

Cliff Floyd wins the Mets game with a 9th inning hit.

Perez whiffs. RANDY JOHNSON HAS THROWN A PERFECT GAME. 117 pitches.

Floyd to Ed Coleman: "I just want to win so bad, man."

I donít know which surprises me more: a perfect game - one of the rarest and most impressive occurrences in all of sports - or a Met victory.
