What a game by Cain. 14 K's really helped his cause for perfection. Less than half the balls were put in play. What a great catch by Gregor Blanco. Crummy Houston team or not, to do what Cain did to a major league line-up was amazing.

I thought after the comeback win by the A's that they might be the top story on sportsnet central tonight. Damn Giants having to upstage us lol.

Cain's performance was perfect but nobody has thrown more strikeouts in a perfect game than Cain's 14 tonight. Only Sandy Koufax has the same amount. Ridiculous.

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.

I was referring to them as a team, and was in no way taking anything away from what he did.

Of course. A perfect game is a perfect game is a perfect game.

Striking out one of the top hitters in the NL all three times he faced him just blows it up even more.

I'm kind of sad. I went to the game last night and Madbum was excellent. He got upstaged. Still, both games were well worth the price.

Based on Bill James' Game Score stat -

Quote:
Game Score is a metric devised by Bill James to determine the strength of a pitcher in any particular baseball game. To determine a starting pitcher's game score:

Start with 50 points.
Add 1 point for each out recorded, so 3 points for every complete inning pitched.
Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th.
Add 1 point for each strikeout.
Subtract 2 points for each hit allowed.
Subtract 4 points for each earned run allowed.
Subtract 2 points for each unearned run allowed.
Subtract 1 point for each walk.
Cain's perfecto (101) was tied for the second most dominating 9 inning pitching performance since 1920 - behind only Kerry Wood's 20 K, one hit shutout (105) and tied with Nolan Ryan's 16 K/2 BB no hitter and Sandy Koufax's 14 K perfect game.

Heck of performance by Cain and the defense. The staff ace torch has officially been passed from Timmy to him.

I was there too, 8 rows back of first base.. Amazing. I was originally going to go to yesterdays game but because of plans to hang out with an old friend I decided to get the tickets for today's game. Great choice. I'm still high from being there.

I had to guys from Chicago sitting in front of me, die hard baseball fans, and they had use same plane tickets or lose them. So they choice to come out here for 2 days and see a giants game. Talk about a great trip.

19,618th (I believe that is correct) Giant game. 1st perfect the Giants have ever been involved in. Cain. Wow.

I was talking early in the game (2nd inning or so) that Cain normally is good enough that it would never be surprising if he threw a no hitter. Didn't think he was going to do it today just to prove me right and with a perfect game but still.

I am SO happy about the perfect game but I wish the team would get more credit.

Perfect game means no errors. Not just Cain, but everybody.

Perfect game means no getting on base after a strikeout because Posey couldn't hold the final strike. Didn't happen.

And just like most (all?) no-no's, it takes some killer defensive plays.

Not that I am not jacked, but in terms of giving the pitcher ALL the credit, I am waiting until the day we see a no-no or perfect game with no ball being put into play. Then and pretty much only then can you give all the credit to the pitcher. Probably never happen since I think that means 27 K's, but point is, no-no's and perfect games especially deserve to have credit given to the entire team (Except a DH in an AL park).

RobertaCBS5: RT @theScoreTicker: Matt Cain is the first player in baseball history to pitch a perfect game & score a run in the same contest.

I went back and forth last Christmas on whether to get a 55 or an 18 on my World Series jersey. Guess which one I chose.

I don't want to deviate from the Cain love in here, but who's going to the Quakes v Galaxy game at Stanford at the end of the month? I photographed the game last year and it was a blast. Too bad none of my friends give two ***** about soccer. At least I got free tickets for this year
