More late-night history: Cain perfectly able against Astros

I was in Toronto yesterday to see Stephen Strasburg toy with the Blue Jays for six innings and that turned out to be well down the list of pitching performances Wednesday. Elsewhere, Boston's Felix Doubront had a no-hitter for six innings in Miami, Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey threw a one-hitter at Tampa Bay.

It was nearly 11:30 and just before I clicked off the TV, I checked the West Coast scores. I was looking at Dodgers-Angels but noticed what was going on in San Francisco. And I was hooked in. Good thing too. On the shores of McCovey Cove, Giants pitcher Matt Cain reeled in a big one at AT&T Park -- the 22nd perfect game in MLB history. It was a 14-strikeout game in a 10-0 win over the Astros.

MLB.com has some great stat nuggets from the Cain and Dickey starts. And here's the site's look at all 27 outs.
