Felix Hernandez Pitches Perfect Game: Fans, Media React

27 up, 27 down. Felix Hernandez was perfect on Wednesday afternoon, retiring every Tampa Bay Rays batter he faced while leading the Seattle Mariners to a 1-0 victory. Hernandez threw 130 pitches, 77 of which were strikes, and calmly struck out five of the final six batters to secure the amazing feat. Somewhere around the seventh or eighth inning, Felix started trending worldwide on Twitter, and as you may expect, it exploded with jubilant and hilarious and poignant and awesome reactions when he achieved perfection.

Your city is proud of you, King Felix.
