Another Perfecto: Cain Is More Than Able

Matt Cain’s successful quest for perfection took place against the Astros at AT&T Park last night.

The Giants’ right-handed workhorse, who received a $127.5 million contract extension just prior to Opening Day, pitched MLB’s fourth no-hitter and second perfect game of a season not even halfway complete.

In case you were fast asleep as the 27th out was being recorded, here’s a sample of how the Twitterverse responded to Cain’s perfecto:

And how nerve-wracking was third baseman Joaquin Arias’ stumble on the final play?

Baseball indeed rocks.
