Oakland Athletics lefty Dallas Braden pitched a perfect game yesterday, making him the 19th pitcher in MLB history to do so. And what's more, his grandmother decided to continue Braden's fight with Alex Rodriguez by saying, after the perfect game, "Stick it, A-Rod."

Rodriguez annoyed Braden when he touched the pitcher's mound rubber while trotting across the field to first base during an April 22 game. At the time, Braden complained, "I don’t go over there and run laps at third base. I don’t spit over there. I stay away. You guys ever see anybody run across the mound like that? He ran across the pitcher’s mound. Foot on my rubber," while Rodriguez said he didn't realize how upset Braden was, "He just told me to get off his mound. That was a little surprising. I’ve never quite heard that. Especially from a guy that has a handful of wins in his career."

Now, with Braden in baseball history with his win over the Tampa Bay Rays, it's only natural that reporters wanted to know what A-Rod thought. At first, he said, "No more about him, please," but later he offered, "I've learned in my career, it is much better to be recognized for all the great things you do on the field. Good for him, he threw a perfect game. And better yet, he beat the Rays."

On Friday, Braden had said of the Yankees slugger, "One, I was always told if you give a fool enough rope, he'll hang himself, and with those comments, he had all the rope he needed. No. 2, I didn't know there was a criteria in order to compete against A-Rod." Man, Braden really hates A-Rod.
