Washington Nationals vs. SF Giants: Strasburg-Cain Live Score, Analysis

Kerry Miller@@kerrancejamesCollege Basketball National AnalystMay 21, 2013

The first two innings weren't pretty, but both Matt Cain and Stephen Strasburg turned in seven-inning gems on Tuesday night.

It was Strasburg's second consecutive game pitching at least seven innings and allowing just one earned run. It was Cain's third start in four tries with at least seven innings pitched and two or fewer runs allowed. Both guys registered seven strikeouts.

However, after a blown save by Rafael Soriano with two outs in the ninth inning courtesy of a Gregor Blanco triple, neither pitcher factored into the decision. We were tied at 2-2 in the 10th until Pablo Sandoval simply murdered a ball to right-center field to give the Giants a 4-2 win.

SCORE UPDATE: Nationals 2 - 4 Giants (F/10)
