BASEBALL'S GREATEST GAMES, SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS FIRST PERFECT GAME, June 13, 2012, AT&T Park
Pitching ace Matt Cain threw the first perfect game in franchise history when he overwhelmed the Houston Astros with a masterful performance at AT&T Park. Cain's superb 14-strikeout tour de force matched Sandy Koufax (September 9, 1965) for the most punch outs registered during a perfect game and immediately ascends into the pantheon of performances in Giants history.
On this momentous day San Francisco Giants fans marveled at Cain's 125-pitch virtuoso display scattering six groundball outs and seven flyball outs to shut down the Houston hitters. The June 13th history-maker provides yet another link to the franchise's long and proud heritage as Christy Mathewson spun a Giants no-hitter on June 13, 1905. A lucky 13th also occurred earlier in season for Cain as he registered a one-hit, 11-K gem on April 13, 2012.
