San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) -
Matt Cain tries to follow up his best start of the season on Tuesday when the San Francisco Giants aim to slow down the red-hot San Diego Padres in the middle test of a three-game set at AT&T Park.
On the one-year anniversary of his perfect game, Cain was nearly as good against Pittsburgh on Thursday, as he scattered two hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings to improve to 5-3, while lowering his ERA to 4.70.
"I feel like I'm throwing the ball like I want," said Cain. "I'm just trying to eliminate the big inning."
