Pitcher Throws Perfect Game For Nashville Sounds

(AP) ROUND ROCK, Texas - A perfect game pitched by Milwaukee Brewers farmhand Manny Parra gave the Nashville Sounds a 3-0 victory in Texas over Round Rock in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.

Making his second start at Triple-A, Parra struck out 11 and threw 77 of his 107 pitches for strikes against the Express, a Houston Astros affiliate. It was the eighth perfect game in the league's 104-year history, but only the third in a nine-inning game. The others came in seven-inning games.

The last pitcher to throw a nine-inning perfect game in the PCL also was a member of the Sounds. John Wasdin, now with the Pittsburgh Pirates, accomplished the feat on April 7, 2003, against Albuquerque.

Tacoma's John Halama did it in July 2001.
