Matt Cain hit hard in no-decision
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain was bailed out by the offense Wednesday against the Rockies, but remains winless after the 12-10 extra-innings win.

Cain was in pretty much perpetual trouble early in the start, as the Rockies jumped on him for four runs in the first two innings of work. He settled down for a while after, but was ultimately tagged with seven runs on 10 hits and three walks in six innings of work. He struck out four while throwing 64 of 104 pitches for strikes, and was taken deep twice in the outing. 

Fortunately, Cain avoided his fourth loss as the offenses rallied to win in extras. He is off to a poor start, carrying 4.35 ERA and 0-3 record through his first five starts. Cain will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Tuesday against the Padres.

Matt Cain takes another tough-luck loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain was terrific yet again Friday, but settled for a loss as his teammates failed to back him up in a 2-1 loss.

Cain went seven strong innings and allowed just a single unearned run on a passed ball in the first inning. He was nearly flawless otherwise, holding the Padres scoreless on four hits and a pair of walks overall. He struck out eight but took the loss, his third straight.

Cain is now 0-3, but that doesn't really tell the story on how well he has pitched. He has a 2.88 ERA in 25 innings, and has allowed more than two earned runs just once in four starts. He will look for better luck in his next start, set for Wednesday in Colorado.

Matt Cain looks sharp in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants starter Matt Cain bounced back with a sharp outing on Saturday, but did not receive any run support, as he suffered a loss to Colorado.

Cain (0-2) allowed a sacrifice fly to Troy Tulowitzki in the third inning for his only damage of the afternoon. The right-hander surrendered one run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven innings pitched.

Cain owns a 4.00 ERA along with a 13:5 K:BB ratio in 18 innings this season. He'll make his next start Friday in San Diego.

Matt Cain gives up three homers in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain had a tough time keeping the ball inside the park on Sunday, serving up three homers while suffering his first loss of the season in a 6-2 defeat to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Cain surrendered two solo homers to Matt Kemp and another solo shot to Hanley Ramirez. He was charged with five runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three over six innings pitched.

Cain has allowed seven earned runs over 11 innings pitched to start the season. He'll be searching his first win of the season Saturday against Colorado.

Matt Cain looks rusty in first start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain got plenty of help early, but could not make it stand up as he took a no-decision in a 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks Tuesday.

Making his first start of the season, Cain wasn't particularly sharp. He gave up seven hits and walked two batters, while striking out only two. He gave up three runs -- two earned -- though he still left the game with a lead before the bullpen promptly blew it in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Cain struggled for much of last season, so this wasn't a particularly positive way for his season to start. He will try to shake off the rust in his next start, set for Sunday against the Dodgers.
