Matt Cain Tosses a Perfect Game for the San Francisco Giants in Their 10-0 Victory Over the Houston Astros [VIDEO]
For just the 22nd time in Major League baseball history, and for the first time in San Francisco Giants history, a perfect game has been thrown. Matt Cain recorded the first perfect game of his career in a 10-0 drubbing of the Houston Astros. In the perfect game, Cain has a career high 14 strikeouts.
The perfect game was nearly blown by Houston's Chris Snyder, who nearly jacked one over the fence before Melky Cabrera made a leaping catch to save it for Cain. After the game, Cain was quoted as saying, "This is incredible right now. It was unbelievable. The guys did a great job making it, in a way, kind of relaxing, because they were able to get on the board early."
Congratulations to Cain. His name is now among the elite as far as pitchers are concerned.
