First Half Numbers: 9-3, 2.53 ERA, 114 SO.
Selected after his electrifying first half, which included a perfect game, Cain is heading to his third All-Star Game.
Although this is the third time Cain has been voted as an all-star, he has yet to throw a pitch in an All-Star Game. Injured in 2009 and not used in 2011, Cain will hopefully see some action this year.
Whether he starts or not, Cain will be pitching for strikeouts against the very dangerous American League lineup.
For all of the Giants, being selected as an all-star is a huge honor. With the game still deciding home field advantage for the World Series, though, look for Giants players to be putting in a little extra effort than most.
