SAN FRANCISCO, CA - San Francisco Giants righty Matt Cain
left Thursday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after being hit by a line
drive on his right arm.
The injury occurred in the fourth inning when Gaby Sanchez laced a ball that
glanced off Cain as he tried to protect himself. Cain walked off the field and
was replaced by Guillermo Moscoso.
A three-time All-Star, Cain entered the game 8-8 with a 4.35 ERA in 25 starts.
Coming into Thursday's game, since the All-Star break, he had allowed two
runs or fewer in five of his six starts.
