Matt Cain’s Best Start Ever

Let’s see here…

This was Cain at his absolute best: the location, the movement, the pitch selection…all at the top of his game. And he was just cruising; only once did Cain need 15+ pitches to get out of an inning (that came in the sixth, in which James McDonald broke up the perfect game). It was really something special. As far as near-perfect games go, this was incredibly close. Had Brandon Crawford been positioned ever-so-slightly to the left, that McDonald single would have been just a groundout.


One thought on “Matt Cain’s Best Start Ever

  1. Incredible performance. Cain didn’t even look like he was breaking a sweat, even after the hit. Bummer about that. Best home opener ever.
