June 13, 2012 – San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco Giants’s Matt Cain pitched his way into Giants history by denying the Houston Astros a single baserunner the entire nine innings. With no walks, no hits and no errors, he struck out 14, tying him with Sandy Koufax for the Major League record.
Giants right fielder Gregor Blanco laid out to make a diving catch in the right-center field gap to preserve the perfecto.
Cain threw 125 pitches, the most ever thrown for a perfect game, and the 10 runs he received were also the most.
For the last three innings, manager Bruce Bochy made defensive substitutions to ensure that Cain would have the best chance of making it to perfection.
