Buehrle an unlikely candidate for perfect game + no-hitter

It's interesting that Mark Buehrle has now thrown a no-hitter and a perfect game over a 3 year period while he has also led the AL in hits allowed 3 of the last 4 years (2005, 2007, 2008). He's a very good pitcher, but not the most likely candidate for a no-hitter and a perfect game.

Other modern pitchers who have thrown a perfect game and a no-hitter - Opponent's Batting Average for their careers:

Jim Bunning .242

Sandy Koufax .205

Randy Johnson .221

Mark Buehrle: .269
