I was hoping he would get it. Nice performance through 7 1/3.

I guess it was only the 1/2 year of the Pitcher.

Uribe's defensive positioning led to the hit, and it was an infield hit that broke up the no-hitter. Cain pitching from the stretch (ignoring the possibility of a lost-no-hitter letdown here) contributed to the home run.

Before losing 10-9 Saturday night (and that had as much to do with Cody Ross not being a very good centerfielder as Brian Wilson's blown save and subsequent loss), the Giants had 18 straight games in which their pitching staff gave up three runs or fewer. That's runs, not just earned runs. And that's the longest such streak of any team since 1920, a.k.a. the post-deadball era.

The Giants are 3-5 in 1-0 games this year. Their bullpen can be shaky, but it has improved since it was being pounded in late July and August. The Giants have the starting pitching I thought the White Sox would have this year.
