On Monday, Mark Buehrle will go up against Dallas Braden. Does anyone know when was the last time two pitchers who had previously pitched a perfect game faced each other?

I believe David Wells faced Randy Johnson back in 2005. Not sure if that was the last time, but that's fairly recent.

It's only happened 20 other times. Link (http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2011_04_11_oakmlb_chamlb_1&mode=preview&vkey=preview_web_home&partnerId=rss_cws)

Right pitchers, wrong year. It was '07.

Mark Buehrle's son is named Braden, coincidentally. It's kind of like when Floyd and Bannister faced each other.

Technically I was right. Just a couple years early. They faced each other on opening day 2005.

You were technically right but that wasn't the right answer to the original question. :wink:
