Post-game thread: Cain implodes, Giants drop series to the Astros

South Africans who watched the game thought, "Man, a train whistle? That is unbelievably annoying."

This is how it's going to be. The Giants score just enough to win. Everything's alright. The Giants score just enough to lose. The sky is falling. The Giants score just enough to win. Everything's alright. The Giants score just enough to lose. The sky is falling. The Giants score just enough to win. Everything's alright. The Giants score just enough to lose. The sky is falling. The...

Wait, Cain gave up six earned against one of the worst offenses of our generation? He deserved to lose?

Well, I don't have a canned response for that.

It was notable, though, that Wandy Rodriguez threw to a rookie catcher today. Rodriguez, came into the game with an ERA of 2.13, and he left with an ERA of 5.64. I didn't "research" that claim, but you know it has to be true. Jason Castro called for screen passes and knuckleballs, which totally befuddled the veteran Rodriguez. The Giants stole 15 bases today, and they would have stolen more if it weren't for the eight passed balls.

I mean, I didn't really watch the game, so I'm just guessing at how Castro did. Man, I'm glad that wasn't us. It seemed awful.
