Giants RHP Cain to miss next start

The SportsXchange

San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain will miss his next scheduled start on Monday due to a strained right hamstring.

Cain sustained the injury during his last start against the Colorado Rockies last Wednesday. He left the game after the third inning.

The Giants planned for Cain to start on Monday, but he cut short a bullpen session on Saturday. The team believes he can avoid the disabled list since the injury is a Grade 1 strain -- the least severe.

Right-hander Yusmeiro Petit will start in place of Cain against the visiting Chicago Cubs.

Cain returned from the disabled list on May 10. He missed one start because of a cut finger. He is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA in eight starts this season.
