Giants SP Matt Cain can't get a win despite big lead on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Giants starter Matt Cain struggled once again on Monday, his sixth start of the season after spending the beginning of the year on the disabled list. On Monday, after being staked to a 6-0 lead, Cain gave up four runs on 10 hits over five-plus innings. He walked one and struck out one, throwing 54 of his 80 pitches for strikes.

Cain cruised through the first five innings, blanking the Giants along the way. But the wheels came off in the sixth. He allowed the first two batters to reach before serving up a three-run home run to Jace Peterson. He gave up a double to the next batter, and was then lifted from the game. That run came around to score and was charged to Cain.

Though he left the game leading 6-4, Cain did not factor in the final decision, as the Braves rallied to tie the game before winning 8-7 in walk-off fashion.

Cain has now allowed four or more runs in four of his six starts. His ERA now sits at 4.91 for the season.

Giants SP Matt Cain gets beaten by Brewers on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

For the third time in five starts this year, Giants starter Matt Cain allowed at least four runs in an outing. On Tuesday, the right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings of work. He struck out three and did not walk a batter, as his record dropped to 2-2 in the 5-2 loss to the Brewers. 

Cain, whose ERA increased to 4.50, gave up two runs in the first and then one each in the third and fourth innings. The Brewers just kept on hitting, as the eight hits match a season-high for Cain.

Since making his season debut on July 2, Cain has been rather inconsistent, posting two strong outings to go along with the three sub-par performances.

Giants SP Matt Cain rebounds with fine effort against Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Giants right-hander Matt Cain established a pattern of following a bad start with a good one Wednesday in San Diego. Inconsistency has indeed marked his return from a forearm injury.

Cain was fine against the Padres, allowing one run on five hits in six innings to raise his record to 2-1 and lower his ERA to 4.09. He walked one and fanned five.

His lone hiccup was a solo home run by Jedd Gyorko in the second inning. He pitched out of jams in the third and fourth, but yielded no hits thereafter.

Giants SP Matt Cain struggles in no-decision vs. D-Backs on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Giants starter Matt Cain struggled in his outing against the Diamondbacks on Friday. The right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, as he was left with a no-decision. 

Cain gave up a solo home run to Chris Owings in the fourth inning, with his team already trailing 3-1 at that point. 

This was the third start of the season for Cain, who now sports a 5.06 ERA. He has sandwiched one stellar start in between two disappointing outings since returning from a forearm injury.

Giants shuffle rotation, Ryan Vogelsong will head to bullpen
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

The Giants will shuffle their rotation coming out of the All-Star break, according to CSN Bay Area.

The Giants will go with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Chris Heston once they return to the field. This leaves starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the odd man out in the rotation, which will push him into the bullpen.

Vogelsong (6-6) has a 4.23 ERA with 70 strikeouts and 42 walks in 95 2/3 innings this season.
