Cain dominates Dodgers

Matt Cain twirled 7 shutout innings, allowed 3 hits and walked none.  The Giants beat the Dodgers 2-1 at AT&T park last night.  They also moved back to within .5 a game of first place.

It looked like a repeat of last night.  Great pitching and nobody scored any runs until late.  But this time the Giants came out on top.  Even though he allowed more hits than the night before, Cain and the Giants' bullpen didn't issue a single free pass all night long.  the only run came on a solo Andre Ethier homerun off of Brian WIlson in the 9th who, oh by the way, came in and picked up his 43rd save.

Tonight the Giants face Ted Lilly and counter with Jonathan Sanchez.  I wish Boch would just leave the lineup that he threw out last night in tact, but he has already said that Pablo will get a night off.  I bet Fontenot and Nate go back to the bench too.  I know a lot of people thought Bochy was crazy for throwing out that lineup, but why not?  The other guys he was trotting out there weren't getting the job done either..
