Question

If a pitcher is pitching a perfect game, and a batter hits a pop foul which the catcher drops for a error, but the pitcher gets the batter out on the next pitch and retires all other batters he faces, is he credited with a perfect game?

From mlb.com:

Perfect games and No-hitters:
An official perfect game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) retires each batter on the opposing team during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings. In a perfect game, no batter reaches any base during the course of the game.

Same scenario .... lets' say the pop foul goes into the stands and the catcher can't reach it ......  perfect game?

To my knowledge, yes it is still a perfect game.  A perfect game means that the pitcher retires all 27 batters, the minimum, he is able to face over 9 innings.  If a runner reaches base at all, then that nullifies a perfect game, but it still may be a no-hitter as long as the runner reached via  walk or error.
