Matt Cain started the game and pitched pretty well. He allowed a run in the first on a leadoff double, a SAC bunt and a groundout. He allowed 2 runs in the 2nd, that would not have scored had it not been for the error on the doubleplay by either Aurilia (if you believe my scorecard) or Vizquel (if you believe the official scorekeeper). Overall, he gave up 4 hits, including 2 doubles, and a hit batsman while tallying 2 strikeouts in 2.2 innings. Matt was throwing with good velocity but his pitches were up on the doubles.....not unusual for this time of year.
