Giants' Cain finally getting run support

The SportsXchange

There's a verb in Giantsville describing a pitcher who has an excellent game and walks away without a win.

It's called Cain. Or the act of getting Cained.

Nobody has been Cained more than Matt Cain in recent years, the victim of lousy run support year after


Well, things are changing.

He gave up four runs in each of his past two starts and won them both. The latest was Tuesday in

Milwaukee, where the Giants won 6-4 even though Cain surrendered 11 hits, matching a career high. Seven of

the hits went for extra bases.

"Hey, that's fine with me," Cain said. "Let's keep it going. I'm not happy giving up some of the runs I

gave up, but we've got to win those games. I'm happy for all of us."

The Giants got outhit 11-5, but what did that matter? It helped that the Brewers were 2-for-13 with

runners in scoring position.
