Matt Cain’s Final Out in Perfect Game Against Astros (Video)

June 14, 2012 – Josh Dhani

San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain made history Wednedsay night when he threw a perfect game against the Houston Astros. Cain took over throughout the whole game, having a total of 14 strikeouts on the Astros.

There were a lot of close calls that could have ended Cain’s mark at history. Houston’s Chris Snyder almost hit a homer, but Melky Cabrera was there to save him. Then Greg Blanco made a crazy, diving catch in the eighth inning to steal Rob Schafer’s hit.

San Fran ended up winning the game, 10-0. It is the 22nd perfect game in MLB history and the first for the franchise. It was also the fifth no-hitter thrown at Houston.

“This is incredible right now,” Cain said. “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.”

This has definitely been the Year of the Pitcher, with two perfect games now and a sensational no-hitter a few weeks ago by Johan Santana and the New York Mets.

Keep it coming, guys!
