    Matt Cain does the thing where nobody gets on base all night



    The Giants franchise waited a long time for a perfect game, and Cain became the one to finally do it. Not Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson or Juan Marichal or Gaylord Perry before him.

    Fittingly, Cain is the longest-tenured Giant these days.

    His perfecto is the 22nd in major league history. He struck out a career-high 14 and got help from two spectacular catches to beat the Houston Astros 10-0 on Wednesday night.

    "I've never had that much excitement in every pitch, every swing," Cain said.

    His 125-pitch gem for San Francisco featured a pair of great plays by his corner outfielders. He got pinch-hitter Jason Castro on a grounder to third for his 27th and final out with the sellout crowd of 42,298 roaring.

    What one person receives without working for, another person must work for
    without receiving.

    I was about to head to bed when they kicked over to the live look in for the ninth. I always try to hit ESPN once before nite nite. That was outstanding, and how about the stretch on that final out. It was dicey for a second with the 3rd baseman wobbling a little. It was outstanding.

    "Yeah, saw that only Larry, Moe, and Curly had chimed-in before the thread was locked. C'est la vie when the cumulative IQ of those 3 shxxxeads is something less than 200, with Squatch nailing down 3rd place. Almost not worth the keystroke time expended reporting those twits, however..."

    I love fan mail.
