SF Giants here comes the sun

cain 05.21

The Giants luck dried up along with the rain, but like I said earlier in the week—it isn’t easy to sweep.

It wasn’t Matt Cain‘s best outing, but it seems he has a sketchy past in Busch Stadium. I hoped his new incarnation would get him through, and it looked like he would be ok in the first inning, but the second inning was tough and four runs scored. He pitched five and ⅓, allowed seven runs–one was a home run–nine hits, three walks and one strike out.

The Giants scored one run in the fourth when Joe Panik singled and Christian Arroyo drove him home with an RBI double. They scored again in the eighth when Brandon Crawford and Eduardo Nunez hit back-to-back jacks.

The final score was: Giants 3, Cardinals 8

We joked about the rain bringing the Giants luck, but the Giants are making their own luck. And they’re looking good.

So now it’s on to Chicago to face the world champion Cubs. That’s ok—we know all about what it takes to be the world champions. The Giants have been there. Three times in the last seven years. We ain’t afraid of no baby bears.
