Giants Recap: Cain Prevents Caining

Don't question it. Just accept it.

I’ve never been in the Giants’ clubhouse when Matt Cain sees the lineup behind him, but I’d imagine it’s something like this.

Matt Cain: /sees lineup

1. Gregor Blanco (L) RF
2. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
3. Melky Cabrera (S) LF
4. Buster Posey (R) C
5. Angel Pagan (S) CF
6. Joaquin Arias (R) 3B
7. Emmanuel Burriss (S) 2B
8. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
9. Matt Cain (R) P

Matt Cain: This is what you give me to work with?

Bruce Bochy: Gotta play the matchups.

Matt Cain: /turns to Madison Bumgarner

Madison Bumgarner: Don’t look at me — I had to deal with it yesterday.

/goes back to feeding cow

Matt Cain: I gotta do this myself, huh?

::flash forward to 6th inning::

Matt Cain: Up by one run? Only one run?

Brandon Crawford: /hit by pitch

Matt Cain: Go time.

/comes up to bat

/hits double, drives in two runs


Brandon Belt hit a triple, too, and it was pretty. Melky Cabrera drove in two runs. Matt Cain also pitched very beautifully because he is, of course, Matt Cain.
