Crazy double header in which the Cards scored an obscene number of runs off Matt Cain for the second time in a row in, specifically, the third inning – representing some adjustment they are making to a habit he has that allows them to shell him for hits the second time through the order. Ouch.
That said, in the final game of the series the Giants got back to basics, played crisp defense and got a GREAT start from Chad Gaudin. This win was important for many reasons, maybe later I’ll get into some of those but it was:
Cardinals 15, Giants 1 in the doubleheader as they won 8-0 and 7-1.
Giants 4, Cardinals 2 – Chad Gaudin gets the win in his first start of 2013.
