|Matt Cain: A very good pitcher|
had a very great game.
It was one of the more dominant outings in baseball history, what with 14 strikeouts.
That makes five perfect games since July 2009 -- less than 36 months -- and that's not counting the Amando Galarraga "imperfect" game marred by the Jim Joyce umpiring error.
What I'm puzzling over -- and this will probably be my topic for the Monday print column -- is why do we suddenly have so many perfectos? Has something basic switched in the game, or is this just random happenstance?
