|Matt Cain shut down by Giants |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/13) The San Francisco Giants have decided to put an end to Matt Cain's season and have recalled him from making his final start Sunday against San Diego, MLB.com reports. Guillermo Moscoso instead will make that start for the Giants.
Manager Bruce Bochy said that Cain is not dealing with a physical ailment. He finished 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA over 30 starts this season for San Francisco.
"As much as he pitched the last few years, it's time to give him a break," Bochy said of Cain, San Francisco's opening day starter.
Cain has exceeded the 200-inning mark in six consecutive seasons, joining only Hall of Famers Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry among Giants to accomplish that feat since the franchise moved west in 1958.
|Matt Cain a tough-luck loser |

(9/25/13) Giants starter Matt Cain turned in an impressive performance but was not backed by enough run support as he took the loss in his penultimate start of the season Tuesday night against the Dodgers. The right-hander surrendered two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings of a 2-1 defeat.
Cain has allowed only five earned runs combined over his last four starts (28 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at home against San Diego. He gave up two runs over seven innings pitched in his previous meeting against the Padres on June 18.

(9/18/13) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain tossed seven-plus strong innings Wednesday against the Mets, but was unable to even his record as the Giants' bullpen faltered in a 5-4 loss.
Cain allowed just a single unearned run in 7 2/ innings of work, while scattering six hits. He walked no hitters and struck out six, while throwing 71 of 109 pitches for strikes. He left the game with a 4-0 lead, which the bullpen promptly blew in the loss. Cain settled for a no-decision.
Cain remains 8-9, and is winless in his last four starts, despite lowering his ERA to 4.06, the lowest it has been since his first start. Cain's next start is set for Tuesday against the Dodgers.
