Baseball's Greatest Games: San Francisco Giants First Perfect Game
Pitching ace Matt Cain threw the first perfect game in Giants franchise history when he overwhelmed the Houston Astros with a masterful performance at AT&T Park. Cain dominated with 14 strikeouts to match Sandy Koufax (September 9, 1965) for the most ever in a perfect game, while tossing only the 22nd perfect game in Major League Baseball history.
San Francisco Giants fans marveled at Cain's 125-pitch classic on this historic night. The defense made several terrific plays, and he otherwise scattered six groundball outs and seven flyball outs to shut down Houston. The impressive performance further links Cain to the franchise's proud heritage as Christy Mathewson spun a Giants no-hitter in 1905 - on June 13th no less.
