Cain's gem wasted
Photos
Cubs 3, Giants 1

Matt Cain hurled seven scoreless innings, striking out nine Cubs batters, but he got no decision as the Giants didn't score until the ninth inning. Tyler Walker gave up two hits in the eighth, one of them being a game-deciding three-run homer that sent the Giants to a fifth straight loss.
