MLB Team Follows Up Perfect Game With Shellacking By Sub-.500 Team

Nothing like following up a perfect game with a 6-3 loss to the Houston Astros, punctuated by a J.D. Martinez grand slam off of Barry Zito. The Giants fall back to four games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers.

Oh, and Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff was injured rushing from the dugout to celebrate his teammate's perfect game. Says CSN Bay Area:

Huff tripped over the dugout railing and landed on his knee celebrating Matt Cain’s perfect game Wednesday at AT&T Park.

"He’s got a pretty good bruise in the right knee," Bochy said. "It’s a sprained right knee, PCL they call it. So I’m going to get with Brian [Sabean] now and see what we’re going to do."

Huff was seen using crutches before Thursday's series finale against the Houston Astros and was picked up by his wife after the game, not joining his teammates for the trip to the airport to start a nine-game road trip.

(In all seriousness, congrats Matt Cain.)

You has me right there until the end.

The stupidest (or greatest, depending on how you want to look at it) injury I've seen still has to be Kendrys Morales. That has to be the quickest high to low emotional roller coaster ever. Hit a game winning GRAND SLAM, then fracture your lower leg and miss over 100 games in the current season and all of the next season.

Stupid Angels.

They talk about Kendrys in the Deadspin article; Santana's recent no-hitter as well

In all seriousness, get bent, Gnats!
