June 13 -- Matt Cain throws a perfect game

It took a 125-pitch performance for Matt Cain to throw the 22nd perfect game in MLB history. The 27-year-old tied a perfect game record by striking out 14 batters over the nine innings, as the Giants won 10-0 over the Houston Astros. If this wasn't remarkable enough already, he became the first Giants pitcher to accomplish the feat in the 130-year history of the franchise.
