History was made in 1985 as Frank Viola(7-8) thrilled the crowd by tossing a perfect game and the 1985 Jive Turkeys defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 1 to nothing.

The partisan crowd cheered every Philadelphia out from the 7th inning on. What a day for the fans. They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on. With every out, the electricity in the air mounted. 1985 had just 2 hits for the afternoon.

Randy Johnson(11-6) suffered the loss. He was pinned with the loss despite not allowing an earned run in his 8 innings of work.

'Viola made us look bad' Danny Ozark said. 'I've seen a lot of good performances in my time and this one will be tucked away in my memory bank for a long time to come'
