  Perfect game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By definition, a perfect game must be both a no-hitter and a shutout.
A perfect game is widely regarded as the pinnacle of pitching performance, and is one of the most difficult achievements in baseball, or indeed any sport.
In a 2000 spring training game (for which statistics are not kept rigorously, due to the varying levels of competition), the Red Sox used six pitchers to retire all 27 Blue Jays batters in a 5-0 victory.

 Game theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Game theory is a branch of applied mathematics that studies strategic situations where players choose different actions in an attempt to maximize their returns.
Game theorists may assume players always act rationally to maximize their wins (the Homo economicus model), but real humans often act either irrationally, or act rationally to maximize the wins of some larger group of people (altruism).
Game theory experienced a flurry of activity in the 1950s, during which time the concepts of the core, the extensive form game, fictitious play, repeated games, and the Shapley value were developed.

But when Cy Young threw his perfect game against the Philadelphia Athletics in 1904, that team's.249 batting average and.292 on-base percentage (comparable to the Mets) was in the middle for the league—third and fifth, respectively, out of eight teams.
The next perfect game was against the 1908 White Sox—third in the league and comparable to the Blue Jays with a.290 OBP, and a.224 average, in a year when the Tigers' undistinguished.263 average was good enough for first.
Indeed, the one perfect game between 1908 and 1964 was against the 1922 Tigers.

 Howstuffworks "How does a "perfect game" in baseball work?"
A minimal "perfect game" would be a game in which the pitcher threw 27 pitches and each batter was out on that first pitch.
A strike-out "perfect game" would be a game in which no batter ever made contact with the ball.
A "no-hitter" is a game where no batter gets to base by hitting, but may get there because the pitcher walks a batter or accidentally hits the batter with a pitch.
