Twitter reacts to Drew Smyly losing a perfect game originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Drew Smyly almost notched the first perfect game in Cubs‘ history.

He nearly finished through eight innings before a bloop 32 mile-per-hour hit down trickled down the third base line, causing Smyly and catcher Yan Gomes to go racing at the ball and crashing into each other.

Smyly ended his bid having gone through 7.2 innings and allowing one hit on 10 strikeouts and 103 pitches. Jeremiah Estrada came in to clean up the rest of the game, pitching 1.1 innings and striking out three to help close out the 13-0 win for the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
