Matt Cain had to throw 123 pitches and eight scoreless innnings of 1-hit ball in order to get his first win of the season. The lads stepped up with some serious offense--three homers--to seal the deal. Who wants to play fookin' dink-ball? I like home runs myself, especially the 3-run kind, and especially early in the game, and Juan Uribe delivered that today. But the story has to be Matt Cain, who dominated (GameScore 85!) a potent Colorado offense and launched the surging Giants 3-1/2 games past the purple-clads and kept them a game back of early-season hot-shots San Diego. Message to Bud and the Friars: keep looking over your shoulder because we are gunning for you!
