Perfect Game Trifecta

There have been only 23 Perfect Games thrown in Major League history, and three of them were in uniform for the Mariners-Astros game tonight at Safeco Field…can you name the three pitchers?

Felix Hernandez (Mariners pitcher) — 8/15/12 vs. Tampa Bay
Philip Humber (Astros reliever) — 4/21/12 at Seattle (with Chicago White Sox)
Dennis Martinez (Astros Bullpen Coach) — 7/28/91 at LA Dodgers (with Montreal Expos)

Here is a fun picture of Felix and El Presidente taken when the two teams met in July, who are the only two of the 23 Perfect Game pitchers born outside of the United State.
