1999 The Astros game against the visiting Padres is suspended when Houston manager Larry Dierker can't speak, falls and begins shaking violently due to a gran mal seizure. After four weeks of recovery, the skipper will return, leading the team to a third consecutive National League Central Division title.
2012 Matt Cain tosses the fifth no-hitter and second perfect game of the season when he retires 27 consecutive batters in the Giants' 10-0 rout of the Astros at AT&T Park. The San Francisco right-hander, with the help of two great defensive plays from outfielders Melky Cabrera and Gregor Blanco, becomes the first pitcher in the 129-year history of the franchise and the 22nd in major league history to accomplish the feat.
