Matt Cain pitched seven Matt Cain-like innings. The Giants came so close to actually letting him get the win, and then Angel Pagan and Santiago Casilla remembered that it was Matt Cain and there’s a reason “getting Cained” is a thing.
Thankfully they also remembered that dropping a series to the Fielder-less Brewers just before rolling in to Kemp-vez Ravine was a recipe for abject disaster that no one wants to deal with, and the Giants managed to pull out a win to take the series 2-1.
The Giants start their first encounter with the bums in blue tomorrow with Barry Zito facing Ted Lilly. Have your clownshoes on standby, just in case.
