Giants 2, Cubs 1


What a game! Great pitching, terrific fielding, fun on the bases, and just enough 9th inning tension to make you glad you stayed until the final out.
Matt Cain was simply phenomenal. The Giants didn’t even have anyone up in the bullpen until the 8th inning. A part of me wanted Bochy to give Cain the shot at a complete game, but bringing in Brian Wilson for his 23rd save of the season was obviously the right move.

Castillo’s diving stop and blind throw to first (while falling) in the 8th was even more amazing to watch live. That is the kind of play you practice as a little kid — the baseball equivalent of the game-winning half-court shot. Aaron Rowand and Fred Lewis both made amazing catches in the outfield as well.

This is a fun Giants team to watch … they have me excited about being 5 games out in the NL West.
