Matt Cain made his Cactus League debut under the lights at Scottsdale Stadium Monday night, throwing two scoreless innings against the Milwaukee Brewers, though the Brew Crew would eventually prove too much, wining by the score of 7-3.
San Francisco took an early 3-0 lead on a Aubrey Huff homer in the fourth, and a pair of manufactured runs generated by Gregor Blanco, who scored score after his singling and stealing second base in both the third and fifth innings.
The Brewers battled back to tie it 3-3, and Giants right-hander Sergio Romo caught himself a bad break. He issued a one-out walk to Caleb Gindl, then Jeff Bianchi's two-out single. Former Giant Travis Ishikawa popped one up to right fielder Justin Christian, who dropped the lazy fly ball, allowing two runs to score. Ishikawa also had a solo shot in the ninth.
The Giants take one the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday with first pitch set for 12:05 p.m. PT in Glendale, AZ with coverage on MLB.TV. Barry Zito will make his debut Cactus League outing.
