Bryan Stow is going through intensive rehabilitation after he suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was viciously beaten last year on opening day at Dodger Stadium. Giants’ reliever Jeremy Affeldt accompanied 13-year-old Tyler Stow to the mound.

Matt Cain’s Best Start Ever

Let’s see here… The fifth shutout of Matt Cain‘s career. The third one-hitter. And the first one-hitter in which the lone hit was a single. 11 strikeouts, which is tied for the second-most he’s ever had in a start. Zero walks. 17 consecutive outs recorded to begin the start. 28 total batters faced. 19 swing-throughs — the most he’s had in a start in years. A game score...

Giants Win 5-0, Matt Cain Is Still Better Than You

There’s a general consensus that Matt Cain is better than all of us.  I’m not one to buy into groupthink, but based on how that game went, I’m inclined to agree.  And now thanks to Cain, we’ve reached a point where we can stop panicking about the terrifying hypothetical of “What if our pitching really isn’t that good?” Dear Matt Cain, Keep doing that thing where you...

Cain dominant as Giants win home opener

Matt Cain threw a one-hitter, allowing only a single by Pittsburgh pitcher James McDonald in the sixth inning during a near-perfect performance Friday as the San Francisco Giants beat the Pirates 5-0 in their home opener.

Video: Cain Throw’s One Hitter

In his second start of the 2012 season, San Francisco Giants hurler Matt Cain decided to come through in a big way as he started to repay his team a portion of the 5-year, 112.5 million dollar contract extension he signed before the start of the year. Cain was on his game yesterday as he threw a one hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Giants home opener. Ironically enough...

James McDonald ruins Matt Cain’s opportunity to meet Kate Upton

Final: Giants 5, Pirates 0 WP: Matt Cain (1-0, 3.00 ERA) LP: James McDonald (0-1, 3.86 ERA) Not too much to say about this one. The Pirates had one person reach base. One. A James McDonald ground ball single was the only thing that kept Matt Cain from being in a commercial with Kate Upton. I’m sure Cain is devastated. Everyone is slumping it seems at the exact same time and...

The slump continues

We’ve been talking about the Bucs’ offensive woes since the season started, and today they were more apparent than ever. Matt Cain was absolutely dominant. He carried a perfect game late into the sixth inning until James McDonald broke it up with a single. Yep, James McDonald. Cain struck out 11, didn’t walk anyone, and was very efficient with his pitches (106). McDonald was...

So far, so weird...

I believe by definition, that the first 7 games of this season have been a mixed bag. We've been swept, we've been embarrassed, we've been disappointing.But simultaneously, we've been exciting, we've been heroic, and we've been promising.Only with the Giants could such contrasts hold so much value at the same time.I mean, we've got Tim Lincecum on one...
