Matt Cain Pitches 22nd Perfect Game in MLB History
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.
Cain is just the 22nd pitcher in Major League Baseball history to record a perfect game, the first by a member of the San Francisco Giants (only took 130 years).
The Twitterverse went ballistic as Cain recorded his final out:
