The Giants pushed their lead over the Cardinals to 2-0 in the bottom of the second inning thanks to a two-out RBI single by Matt Cain. Yes, you read that correctly.

Brandon Belt grounded out to begin the inning before Gregor Blanco reached on a single to right field. Blanco moved over to second base when Allen Craig made a diving stop of a ground ball off the bat of Brandon Crawford for the second out. However, Kyle Lohse hung one and Cain took advantage by lining it right up the middle and into center field. The Giants have RBI hits from their starting pitchers in three straight games.

Cain has tossed two scoreless innings so far tonight, but he has already thrown 46 pitches. While he might not be long for this game, he’s sure making an impact.

    Still in the 3rd, no outs, bases loaded, and the Giants are ahead 6-0. Woohoo!

      Poor defense and lousy pitching. I hope the Giants hang in there, but it must be a discouraging moment for the Cards. Inning over, Giants up 8-0.

        Oops! That would be 7-0.

        Now you’re right. You must be psychic.

    there’s not a competitive game on T.V. tonight Giants killing the Cardinals, Bears beating up the Lions and Obama is tearing Romney a new butt

      No problem with any of those scenarios, as far as I’m concerned.
