Matt Cain deserved better tonight. He is is now 8-9 for the season but looked strong in his first game back since August 22. In 6 1/3 innings he allowed 8 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, with 3 Ks.
Matt Cain deserved a better fate tonight. Great outing coming off the DL. #SFGiants

The lack of run support once again hurt the Giants this game. Soon I will write a feature to compare run support this season to the last few years.
One positive from tonight was the defense from our ‘Angel in the Outfield.’ Angel Pagan had two amazing assists that stopped the Diamondbacks from scoring more runs than the two recorded.
8th inning: Angel Pagan fielded a ball in the gap and relayed to Brandon Crawford who delivered a perfect throw to Sanchez at home to get Wil Nieves. I’ve been impressed with Sanchez the last few weeks. He’s really stepped it up being healthy as a backup catcher .
Thought I would throw this one in. The Giants need to resign Javier Lopez next year. Seriously Sabian, I hope you have that contract ready for him. GIF courtesy of Carmen Kiew.
