NEW YORK, NY – On June 13 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, Giants ace Matt Cain threw the first perfect game in franchise history when he overwhelmed the Houston Astros with a masterful performance. Cain dominated with 14 strikeouts to match Sandy Koufax (September 9, 1965) for the most ever in a perfect game, while tossing only the 22nd perfect game in Major League Baseball history. Fans looking to relive Cain’s historic day on the mound can view the complete, uncut game in BASEBALL’S GREATEST GAMES: SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS FIRST PERFECT GAME, available at SFGiants.com and in stores, including the Giants Team Store, for $12.95srp on August 21.
San Francisco Giants fans marveled at Cain’s 125-pitch classic on this historic night. The defense made several terrific plays, and Cain otherwise scattered six ground ball outs and seven fly ball outs to shut down Houston. The impressive performance further links Cain to the franchise’s proud heritage as in 1905 Christy Mathewson also spun a June 13th Giants no-hitter!
Direct from the Major League Baseball archives, this uncut television broadcast of the historic and masterful pitching performance by Cain includes a special audio feature that allows fans to watch the television broadcast and listen to the Giants Radio Network announcers in English or Spanish!
