Matt Cain surrenders three home runs

Matt Cain took the loss on Thursday night in Atlanta, allowing seven runs on 10 hits in four innings. Cain struck out just one.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants would go on to lose 12-11 as their disappointing season continues. Cain was coming off a surprisingly solid outing in Coors, but he lost any momentum he had when he allowed three homers versus the Braves. He can't be trusted in fantasy right now.

Matt Cain pitches surprisingly well in Coors

Matt Cain took the loss on Saturday afternoon, allowing two runs (one earned) on nine hits in five innings. Cain also walked two and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Considering he was pitching in Colorado against a really good Rockies lineup, Cain actually pitched pretty well. He allowed nine hits, but was at least able to limit the damage. Cain certainly pitched well enough to get the win, but the San Francisco offense did him no favors in this one. He now sports a 4.99 ERA through the middle of June.

Matt Cain gets roughed up again

Matt Cain received a no-decision on Sunday, allowing five runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings pitched. Cain also walked three and struck out just one.

Fantasy Impact

Cain's days of being an impact fantasy player are a thing of the past. He now has a 5.22 ERA on the year and offers little strikeout upside.

Matt Cain falls to Brewers

Matt Cain took the loss on Tuesday night, allowing five runs on 10 hits over five innings of work. Cain struck out three and walked two.

Fantasy Impact

Cain now sits at 3-5 with a 4.87 ERA on the year. He started out the season pitching well but hasn't been useful in fantasy leagues for weeks now. He shouldn't be on the streaming radar.

Matt Cain falls to 3-4

Matt Cain took the loss on Wednesday night against the Nationals, allowing three runs (two earned) over five innings. Cain also allowed eight hits, one walk, and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

All the damage in this one came off of a three-run homer by Ryan Zimmerman. Cain got off to a hot start this year but struggled in May. He doesn't need to be owned unless in the deepest of leagues right now.
