Cain, Bullpen Lead Giants Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Matt Cain and three relievers combined on a two hitter, Buster Posey homered and the NL West leading San Francisco Giants beat Carlos Zambrano and the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on Tuesday.

Cain and Zambrano each pitched six scoreless innings, but the Giants did just enough to prevail. Leading San Diego by a half game and Colorado by less than a game when the night began, San Francisco finally broke through with one out in the eighth when Posey drove a 3-1 pitch from Andrew Cashner to center field, pumping his fist as he rounded the bases.

His 15th homer gave him 62 RBIs, the most by a Giants rookie since Chili Davis' 76 in 1982.
