…. Nice start

Cain is perfect through three, and the Giants start out with a nice three-run lead. That’s what you call a bounce-back. At least for a beginning.

UPDATE: Cain is perfect through four. He has really come on during the second half of the season. Since the All Star break, he has the seventh best ERA in the NL (2.53), with 64 hits allowed in 89 innings, 77 strikeouts and just 17 walks. That all adds up to the second-best WHIP, (0 .91), which is simply outstanding.

For the month of September, Cain has been even better. Best WHIP in the league (0.71), 2.25 ERA, which is strangely high for a pitcher who is being so stingy. Best ERA in the NL for the month of September? Cole Hamels, at 0.63. Number two is none other than Jonathan Sanchez (0.73). Madison Bumgarner is at 1.00. With Lincecum at 2.08, good for 14th place, the Giants have canada viagra four of the top 15 pitchers in the NL right now.

Actually, the Giants’ Core Four have been as dominating as any pitching staff in decades. The 18 game streak of not allowing more than three runs has only been bettered by the 1917 White Sox. Coming into today’s game, not one of them has a WHIP above 1.00. Actually, for all the Zito bashing going on here, his WHIP for the month is just 1.19, which is still pretty damn good, (although it’s possible that yesterday’s horror show isn’t included in today’s ESPN stats page)

UPDATE: Cain has a no-no through five. Worked through his first jam after walking Tulo. That’s two Giants pitchers going no hits through five innings at Coors Field, which is, quite frankly, outrageous. You have to admit, Lincecum, Cain and Sanchez makes the Giants look like a devastating playoff opponent.

UPDATE: No-no through six. Getting interesting….

UPDATE: No-no through seven. Definitely feels likew something is going on right now. Can’t get away from the game, because, damn, a no-hitter at Coors would be historic.

UPDATE: No no-no. Loses the no-no, and then the shutout. Let’s not lose the game, especially with the Reds pounding the Padres 6-2 in the sixth.

Cain’s gonna go for the complete game.

UPDATE: Great. Tulowitzky gets to bat as the tying run in the ninth inning again. Damn, this guy is terrifying right now. One out away.

UPDATE: Huge, HUGE win!!!! Great job by Cain. Come on, Reds!!!
