…. Perfect!!!!

Matt Cain just threw the 22nd perfect game in baseball history!!!!! There were only two real chances to get a hit, and the defense was stellar:

.

… Left fielder Melky Cabrera chased down Chris Snyder's one-out flyball in the sixth, scurrying back to make a leaping catch at the wall. Cain raised both arms and slapped his glove in delight when Cabrera made the play. Then, right fielder Gregor Blanco ran into deep right-center to make a diving catch on the warning track and rob Jordan Schafer for the first out of the seventh. The 27-year-old pitcher hugged Blanco in the dugout

after the inning.

UPDATE: Watching the game, I thought Cain was thinking no-hitter. He looked as locked in as any pitcher I've ever seen. I said it to my wife after the fourth, he looked like he knew they couldn't touch him. After the Melky catch in the sixth, his reaction confirmed it. That's when I texted all my buddies, including one of them AT THE GAME, and told them we needed to go radio silent. The Blanco catch made me scream so loud I was dizzy. After that, I told my family they had to stay up til the end, because it looked like Cain was gonna throw a perfect game.

Incredible. Cliff Corcoran says it was one of the best pitched games in baseball history…. watching it live, I thought that, and after it was over, it was clear that it was the best game I'd ever seen a pitcher throw, better than either of the Yankee perfecto's by Cone and Wells. Other than the deep fly balls, there was never a moment when you felt like he wasn't in complete control.

Congratulations to Matt and the Giants.
