|Cain Delivers in Vintage Style as Giants Beat Cubs
|SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Matt Cain pitched into the ninth inning on the way to winning his fifth straight start and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Saturday.
Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game at 1 in the sixth, then San Francisco went ahead on an RBI fielder's choice by Joaquin Arias on which Huff broke up a would-be double play. Huff produced his first RBI since April 16 and just his fifth this season after he spent a stint on the disabled list with anxiety disorder and is no longer a regular.
David DeJesus homered but it wasn't enough to help the Cubs avoid their ninth straight road loss. It is Chicago's longest skid away from Wrigley Field since also dropping nine in a row from Aug. 25 to Sept. 10, 2006.
