VIDEO: Gregor Blanco preserves Matt Cain’s perfect game

Gregor Blanco of the San Francisco Giants had a huge role in helping Matt Cain preserve his perfect game, making this amazing diving catch in the seventh inning on a deep fly ball off the bat of Astros center fielder (and former Blanco teammate in Atlanta) Jordan Schafer. Blanco, playing right field, was shaded towards center field, and the ball hit by Schafer was tailing towards deep left center, and center fielder Angel Pagan was never going to cover enough ground to get to the ball in time with where he was playing. Sure enough, Blanco laid out with a Herculean effort, and made the catch to a rousing ovation from the crowd at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
