Giants stomp Rox 9-3
By Thomas Harding | MLB.com
SAN FRANCISCO — The Rockies spent the previous night witnessing the Giants celebrate the wonder of pitcher Matt Cain as they honored him for his June 13 perfect game. Speech after speech by Giants broadcasters and manager Bruce Bochy, as well as his high school coach, seemed to send the message that the Rockies wouldn’t stand a chance on Saturday afternoon.
Well, Cain, after receiving various gifts in his ceremony, did grant the Rockies with a chance in the sixth inning. But not much came of it, and the Giants — who benefitted from a two-run homer by National League Most Valuable Player candidate Buster Posey — ended up winning, 9-3, at AT&T Park. MORE>>>
