This is why baseball is such a great game.
The day after baseball's official Opening Day, Texas Rangers hurler Yu Darvish came within one out of a Perfect game.
Darvish had 2 outs in the 9th inning without allowing anyone to reach base and to top it off - he had struck out 14 Houston Astros. But it was not to be.
One out away from his Perfecto, Marwin Gonzalez grounded a clean single through Darvish's legs to spoil the Perfect game and the No-hitter.
Darvish's 14 strikeouts matched a Minute Maid Park record and were the most by a Rangers pitcher since Nolan Ryan had 14 in July 1991 against the Angels.
