X Man At Last

6.2 5 2 1 2 5
What's a game score?

I can't testify to how gnarly he was last night, but by gawd Matt Cain got win number 10 and he got it despite the presence of M.C. O'Connor at the ballpark. It must have been sweet, M.C., I'm happy for you.
The big thrill must have been seeing Pablo Sandoval hit his first grand slam. Pablo passed Molina as the team RBI leader, and is currently leading in the vote to get the last spot on the All Star team.
Brian Wilson came up with one of his patented 9th inning dramas. They drive me crazy. At least he didn't blow it this time.

Cain was 13-12 in his first full season '06. Since then he's attained double-digits only in the loss column- 7-16 and 8-14.
The question now must be asked- Do you think he can reach the magic 20-win mark this year?

Start with 50 points. Add 1 point for each out recorded, (3 points per inning). Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th. Add 1 point for each strikeout. Subtract 2 points for each hit allowed. Subtract 4 points for each earned run allowed. Subtract 2 points for each unearned run allowed. Subtract 1 point for each walk.

Just saw the Dillinger movie Public Enemies. John McGraw's death is mentioned on the radio. However, baseball credibility is scorched by broadcast of Yankees-Cubs World Series two years too late.
