Comcast SportsNet Bay Area will air a special encore presentation of Matt Cains historic perfect game tonight at 7:30 p.m. Last month Cain pitched the first perfect game in the Giants 130-year franchise history and the 22nd in major league history against the Houston Astros.

Take a look back at that incredible night with our deadline coverage of the event and join us tonight to relive the moment.

Perfect game box score

Anatomy of perfection: Cain inning by inning
This was it. It was real, all of it. Bochy didnt dare put a reliever on the bullpen mound, but he had Shane Loux secretly warming up in the batting cage, ready to enter the moment Cain gave up a hit. That did not happen.

Cain tosses first perfect game in Giants history
Matt Cain, normally such a square-jawed gunslinger on the mound, punched the air, catcher Buster Posey leapt into his arms and Brandon Belt had the presence of mind to tuck the baseball in his back pocket before joining the emotional pile in front of the mound.

Defense delivers for Cain when it counts
Most perfect games have a signature perfect play and on a perfect Wednesday night at AT&T Park, Gregor Blanco etched his name in Giants lore with a spectacular snag.
