In a crazy roller coaster fashion that began with Nate Schierholtz tripping and getting tagged out trying to reach third, the Giants had the bases loaded with Emmanuel Burriss up.
All righty then.
Balkin’ Bob Davidson called a balk on Indians pitcher Tony Sipp, allowing Miguel Tejada to score the game’s lone run.
Somehow, it figures this would be the way Matt Cain gets his one run of support.
Cain was stellar as he usually is, going 7 innings, striking out 6, walking 1, and giving up 4 hits.
A typical day for Cain, a typical Giants offense. (Because, really, would any other team get their only run of the game on a balk?)
