PADRES 6 - GIANTS 4
You knew it was gonna happen. The Giants were gonna have to stretch the season out just a liiiiiitle bit longer.
Matt Cain just didn't have it tonight and the Padres capitalized. He gave up all 6 runs in 4 innings. In a way I'm glad Cain got this hiccup out of the way. Better have it come during the regular season than in the playoffs.
The Giants, to their credit, made it a game. The big hit of the night came from the least likely source of all. Aaron Rowand. I'm glad he got a moment to shine. Despite what we all think about his play, the guy is a gamer and he goes about playing the game the right way. The bullpen came through and pitched 5 innings of shutout baseball and the Giants got the tying run up to the plate in Aubrey Huff who somehow managed to fly out into a double play.
Anyway the champagne will just have to chill on ice for one more day. It wouldn't be a fitting end to the 2010 Giants season if they just won it in the first game.
