The drama ended with the first batter, and now the only suspense in Philip Humber's life is when wife Kristan delivers the couple's first child in the immediate future.
In his first start after throwing the 21st perfect game in major league history, Humber and the White Sox were humbled quickly Thursday night as the Red Sox rolled over them 10-3.
"This game will humble you," Humber said after allowing a career-high nine runs. "It's one of those thing it will make you feel good one day and make you feel bad the next. You have to take every game as its own game. Saturday was one game and tonight was one game. I'm going to keep working and battling and hopefully next time will be better."
