Wow! HELL of a Game.
I was watching it for a while but did not pay attention to the box score since the giants were up big. I watched some other programs and tuned back in after it was over :facepalm:
Pretty sweet though.
I realized after the 4th he had a perfect game going and watched it develop. Still a long ways to go after 4, but damned if it didn't happen. It's a rare occurance. Just the 24th in the history of the game. Out of hundreds of thousands of games. it was pretty cool to witness, even if on tv. I've seen no-hitters, but this is the first perfect game I've seen from start to finish. Bad night for Krukow to take off.
Actually, I watched Johnathan Sanchez' near perfect game blown on an error by Uribe. Sanchez did his part delivering a grounder to the shortstop.
Holy crap, there have been 24 now? When I was a kid, I think Tom Browning pitched the 15th? Saw him come close to seeing one IIRC. Made it to the ninth inning.
edit: Browning pitched the 12th, and I was correct that he made it to the ninth inning on another game, according to wikipedia.
I remember sitting on my Dad's lap while listening to the 1956 Dodgers-Yankees World Series game on 10/08/1956.
Don Larsen. I wasn't aware of the date, but I can put 2 and 2 together.
Yeah, there has been a jump in the recent modern era. Maybe the 100 pitch count has something to do with it? Although, Randy Johnson and Roy Halladay aren't guys the managers have to worry too much about pitch counts. Big strong horses, just like Matt Cain.
Perfect game - but since it was the Astros it will have as Asterisk next to it in the record book.
* Semi-pro opponent
That's a good one.
The Giants have had so many injuries this season that many times the entire infield was the AAA team.
