Kinki University Senior High School lefty Daisuke Tanaka tossed a perfect game against Osaka Sakai Higashi High School on Saturday. Using a 142km/h fastball, 166cm (~5'5") tall Tanaka tossed 137 pitches and struck out 14 over 9 innings of work.

The last high school perfect game on record during the Osaka Regionals was tossed by Hideo Nomo in 1985.
