This Day in Baseball History
May 26, 1959 > Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches 12 perfect innings against the Milwaukee Braves, but loses the game in the 13th. After Felix Mantilla reaches base on an error to ruin the perfecto, Haddix walks Hank Aaron and then surrenders a home run to Joe Adcock. Both Aaron and Adcock are called out when Adcock passes him on the bases, but Mantilla's run is allowed to stand, giving the Braves the 1-0 victory.
