Matt Cain allowed just one run on five hits, three walks, and four strike outs in 7.1 innings pitched Sunday to earn his first victory of the season as the Giants defeated the Dodgers 4-3.
Matt Cain, and his owners, probably wish he could face the Dodgers every time out as Cain has allowed just one run in two starts (13.1 innings) against the Dodgers this season and 25 runs in his five other starts. Maybe this successful outing will help Cain get back to his old ways, but if I were a Cain owner I would be trying to sell as opposed to holding on to him, so long as you do not undersell Cain too much.

Cain has been the most consistent pitcher in all of baseball over the last half-decade, and after getting off to a slow start in 2013 he is getting back on track. Consider Cain a buy-low option at this point, although many of his owners are still clinging to the value he's had in past years.
