27 batters up, 27 batters down. Thomas Lyons (W 1-0) threw a perfect game for Greece in a 5-0 shutout against Russia. He never got to a full count and needed just 86 pitches to accomplish the feat. He struck out 15. Just one Russian batter hit a Flyball into the outfield, getting caught by the right fielder.
The offense provided Lyons with the necessary run support in the fourth, when Stephan Palos was hit by pitch with the bases loaded. One period later Chris Lemonis made it 4-0 with a three-run homerun. James Demetral scored his third run of the game in the seventh on a bases loaded walk.
Viacheslav Vasilyev (L 0-1) allowed five hits, five runs and two walks in 6 2/3 innings.
