Some of the Giants best pitchers in the club’s 130-year history, Hall of Famers Carl Hubbell, Christy Mathewson, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry did not accomplish what Matt Cain did on Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

Cain earned the first perfect game in the Giants’ history and its 14rh no-hitter.

The 27-year-old San Francisco right-hander dominated the overmatched Houston Astros in a 10-0 rout for the 22nd perfect game of all time and the fifth no-hitter, count them; pitched by a MLB pitcher this season.

Cain, the Giants #2 starter, is now 8-2 in 2012. He struck out a career-high 14 batters of the 27 official outs and tied Sandy Koufax for the most strikeouts in a perfect game. He threw 19 first-pitch strikes and never had a 2-0 count in winning a career-high seventh straight start.

He threw 125 pitches, 86 for strikes. The 125 pitches were the most ever in a perfect game.

It was the third no-hitter thrown in June with Cain joining Johan Santana of the Mets and the six-pitcher combined no-hitter by Seattle’s pitching staff.

The San Francisco Giants, Major League Baseball world champions from 2010, were the latest team to visit President Barack Obama and the White House.

The Giants’ World Series trophy and a championship ring were displayed in the East Room of the White House where the president honored the team.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy gave the president a number 44 Giants jersey, which happens to be the retired number of slugger Willie McCovey, but signifies Obama being the nation’s 44th president.

Matt Cain, one of the team’s ace pitchers, awarded the president with a bat emblazoned with the president’s name and signed by the entire team.

Matt Cain shut down the Texas Rangers offense, which is one of the best in Major League Baseball.

The Giants took advantage of the Rangers erratic bullpen bullpen as San Francisco won in a rout, 9-0 on Thursday night. The Giants head to Texas with a 2-0 lead and very much in command of a series that looks like it might end early.

Edgar Renteria, who has had playoff success with St. Louis, Boston and Florida before, continued his October success with a go-ahead home run, and the Giants scored seven runs in the eighth inning, the biggest inning in their postseason history.

The Rangers relief corps looked anything but championship material, as they surrendered four straight two-out walks let the game get into a rout. Texas set a record for most runs allowed in the franchise’s first two World Series games.

Cody Ross has been a valuable pickup for the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants picked him up from the Florida Marlins in an August waiver deal as a backup outfielder, Ross has had some postseason experience as he has hit three homers and knocked home an RBI single in game 3 to break a scoreless tie.

Matt Cain outpitched Cole Hamels as the Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday afternoon in San Francisco to take a 2-1 lead in the NL championship series.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy moved Ross up from the number 8 spot in the batting order to number 5.

The Giants have shown that they are the perfect matchup with the defending National League champions with power, pitching and relief pitching.

Two more wins and the Giants are in the World Series.

San Francisco haven’t won the World Series since moving to the Bay Area before the 1958 baseball season. The last time the club won the championship was in 1954 as the New York Giants, when Dusty Rhodes was the hero with two homers in 6 at bats.

Winning pitcher Matt Cain allowed two hits over seven innings, struck out five and walked three in a 119-pitch effort for the Giants.

Volquez can’t get out of 1st inning; Giants steamroll Reds, 11-2

The San Francisco Giants had trouble scoring runs in St. Louis this past weekend. However, home cooking might’ve been what the doctor ordered.

Starting pitcher Matt Cain, winless in his last three starts, was given early run support, while Andres Torres clubbed a two-run homer and San Francisco dominated the Reds, 11-2.

The Reds also lost starting outfielders Jim Edmonds and Laynce Nix to injuries.

Aubrey Huff added a solo homer while leading off the eighth inning. Huff, Pat Burrell and Freddy Sanchez all doubled in runs in the Giants’ five-run outburst in the first inning to knock Edinson Volquez (3-2) out of the game after two-thirds of an inning. It was the shortest start of his career.

Sanchez had a season-high four hits.

Cain, who evened his record at 10-10, retired the final 14 batters he faced and struck out the side in order in the seventh. He gave up two runs on five hits in eight innings, struck out seven and walked one. He threw a season-high 125 pitches.

San Francisco batted around in the first inning and Volquez was removed by manager Dusty Baker after he walked Andres Torres for the second time in the inning on his 39th pitch. Jordan Smith came on in relief and struck out Buster Posey.

The NL Central leaders, the Reds had won eight of nine and 12 of 16 games coming into AT& T Park but were cooled off by Matt Cain, who usually pitches well against them. Their lead in the division is down to 2 1/2 games as St. Louis won at Pittsburgh on Monday night.
