The San Francisco Giants' Matt Cain threw a 125-pitch perfect game against the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Cain finished the game with 14 strikeouts and the Giants walked away with a 10-0 win.

Cain benefited from a full-extension diving grab by right fielder Gregor Blanco in the seventh inning. Blanco bee-lined to triple's alley and made a sensational grab on the warning track.

The Twitterverse went ballistic as Cain recorded his final out:

Congratulations to Matt Cain on his majestic night on the mound!
