Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga "was robbed" of a perfect game by an umpire's blown call.
Granholm posted a comment on Twitter after Wednesday night's game saying she was issuing a proclamation "declaring Galarraga pitched a perfect game." She made similar comments Thursday on Mackinac Island during an interview with WJR radio.
First base umpire Jim Joyce declared a runner safe with two outs left in the ninth inning, costing Galarraga a perfect game. After seeing the replay, Joyce said he blew the call and apologized to the pitcher for not realizing Cleveland's Jason Donald didn't beat the throw to first base.
