Which the argument can be made that the other perfect games were less likely because more balls were put in play. Dallas Braden, for example, only struck out 6, meaning 21 balls were put in play vs 13 for Cain.

That is why strikeout pitchers are so valuable. They rely on their pitching, not the defense behind them.
