SAN FRANCISCO, Ca - Matt Cain threw a perfect game Wednesday night, striking out 14 in San Francisco's 10-0 victory over Houston.
Cain ended up trying the Major League Baseball record for most strikeouts ever in a perfect game.
But Cain nearly had his perfect game erased if not for the help of San Francisco right fielder Gregor Blanco. Blanco made a huge catch when on a dead sprint he snagged a fly ball at the warning track. Blanco and Brandon Belt also knocked in three runs to help Cain in the history making night.
Jonathan Sanchez was the last Giant to throw a perfect game in 2009.
Cain's perfect game was the 22nd in MLB history.
