No Run Support For Cain – Giants Lose To Brewers 3-1

By Denise Walos

The Giants lost to the Brewers tonight 3-1. It was not because of a bad outing by starting pitcher by Matt Cain. Tonight was all about the inability to score with runners in scoring position.

"It’s a problem. They’re wasting good pitching performances. It’s not about pitching right now, it’s about hitting.  – Kuiper"

You can read more on the play-by-play here but I’ll spare the details in this recap. The Giants need to start hitting when they have men on base. Not much more to discuss in my opinion.

Madison Bumgarner (11-6, 2.69 ERA) takes the mound tomorrow vs. Brewers RHP Marco Estrada (4-4, 5.32 ERA). Let’s hope the Giants find some way to provide run support.
