Domingo German pitched the fourth perfect game in New York Yankees history Wednesday night, retiring 27 Athletics in order in an 11-0 victory at Oakland Coliseum.

When Esteury Ruiz hit the right-hander's 99th pitch of the night sharply to Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson, German became the first to throw a perfect game in MLB since Felix Hernandez against the Tampa Bay Rays on Aug. 15, 2012.

German (5-5) etched his name in Yankees lore alongside three others who threw perfect games: Don Larsen in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers; David Wells on May 17, 1998, against the Minnesota Twins; and David Cone on July 18, 1999, against the Montreal Expos.
