Matt Cain gave up 7 runs for the second time in his last five starts. It looked like he was done after six, but Ol' Boch sent him out for the seventh and it got ugly. Adam Dunn was the main Cain pain, stroking a double and two homers. Despite a 1-0 lead, the night started poorly for Matt, his pick-off throw to 2nd base in the bottom of the first was not something you see very often (unless you follow Little League). Stephen Strasburg looked very sharp, throwing a filthy change-up that reminded me of another phenom. Strasburg is a big guy, however, and looks like he could have played linebacker in college. He can also bring it at 99-mph. I think Tim might just have competition for "most exciting pitcher in the NL" next year. The kid turns 22 on the 20th. At 45-41, the Giants have the 9th best record in the league. Since only four teams make the playoffs, we'd best get cracking.
