Perfection, thy name was Catfish


Oakland pitcher's spectacular outing makes history

From the beginning of the game, it was as if the Minnesota Twins never had a chance.

It was only the first inning and 22-year-old Oakland Athletics pitcher James Augustus Hunter, known by the nickname "Catfish," had already sent two scoreless Twins' trudging back into the dugout.

Up next was Harmon "Killer" Killebrew, one of the team's most feared hitters. He too never made it to first base.
