SAN FRANCISCO -- Matt Cain thought he had pitched in high-pressure games before.Then the Giants starter took the mound Friday at AT&T Park for Game 2 of the National League Division Series. "It was more just overexcited, really," Cain said of his feelings before the Braves beat the Giants, 5-4, in 11 innings to tie the series at one game apiece. "I've pitched in [what] I felt like big games, but nothing like this. Just the atmosphere of the whole situation. To go out there and get that first inning going was great."
