Brian McCann’s RBI single proved to be the only damage the Braves could muster, despite coming with no outs. Melky flied out softly to left, Conrad struck out on three pitches, and Alex Gonzalez popped up an 0-2 pitch to make the third out.
Still, for Braves fans, it’s nice to see some semblance of life from the Braves hitters. Actually, that’s a semblence of life for the second straight inning-they did threaten in the fifth, even though they didn’t score. Right now, it doesn’t look like the Giants will let Cain stay in the game very long if he begins to struggle, as the pitching coach was very quick to sprint out to the mound following McCann’s single.
