Giants Cain tosses perfect game
For the second time this season and the 22nd time
in major league history, there's been a perfect game.
San Francisco's Matt Cain authored the first perfect game in
Giants history, striking out 14 Houston Astros in a 10-0 rout. Cain
got pinch-hitter Jason Castro on a grounder for his 27th and final
out with the sellout crowd of 42,298 roaring at AT&T Park.
Cain says the emotion of pitching a perfect game is incredible.

Cain's gem follows Phil Humber's (UHM'-burz) perfect game for
the Chicago White Sox on April 21. It's just the second time in
baseball history there have been two perfect games in the same
season -- Philadelphia's Roy Halladay and Oakland's Dallas Braden
did it in 2010.
