Remembering Matt Cain’s Perfecto…
Two years ago today The Horse, Matt Cain, pitched the first perfect game in the entire 130 year history of the Giants baseball franchise, and only the 23rd (22nd at that time) perfect game in major league history.
I remember vividly sitting at my place in Diamond Springs with my son Zach as we watched the entire game. What a magic night in not only SF Giant baseball history, but in baseball history overall.
Here is a short video that encapsulates all 27 outs. Check out the catches by Cabrera in the 4th and 6th…not bad, but then check out Blanco’s dive for the first out in the 7th. It is nothing short of spectacular. And then Arias’ play at 3rd for the final out doesn’t come without just a little bit of torture.
