Counting Down a True Rarity: MLB's 20 Perfect Games

Part 13 of 21

12 Tom Browning, Cincinnati Reds September 16, 1988

For the fifth time in 12 games, the author of a perfect game eked out a 1-0 victory. Cincinnati Reds left-hander Tom Browning prevailed over the Los Angeles Dodgers in a late season contest at Riverfront Stadium, whiffing seven along the way.

Browning became the first and only Reds hurler to throw a perfect game in 1988. Less than a year later, he made a second bid before the Phillies' Dickie Thon broke up the flawless game to lead off the ninth inning.

He accumulated 123 wins (all with the Reds) to go against 90 losses over 12 seasons.
