Mark Buehrle, coming off a perfect game in his last outing, made more history Tuesday night in Minnesota

Buehrle threw another 5 2/3 innings of perfect baseball and in doing so, passed Jim Barr and Bobby Jenks record of 41 straight batters retired.

Buehrle tied the record by striking out Michael Cuddyer and then got Joe Crede, who made the final out of Buehrle's no hitter two years ago, to ground out to shortstop to break the record. 

Buehrle proceeded to retire three more batters, setting the record at 45 straight batters retired, until walking Alexei Casilla, which broke up the perfect game, before giving up a single to Denard Span, breaking up the no-hitter.
