Unfortunately the first base umpire was not perfect. With two out in the 9th, after 26 straight batters were retired, umpire Jim Joyce blew it by calling the 27th out “safe”.
Galarraga retired the 28th batter to complete a shut out complete game victory that in God’s eyes was a perfect game (plus one).
