Cubs Vs. Giants Preview: Matt Cain And Matt Garza Take The Mound

The Chicago Cubs couldn't quite capture a victory on Friday night -- they fell to the Giants 4-3 despite a three-run, ninth-inning rally fueled by an Alfonso Soriano home run -- but they get a chance for revenge on Saturday night. The loss cut their winning streak down at just three games, so now Chicago will be trying to avoid the start of another losing streak. They are just 6-18 away from Wrigley Field so far this season, and the task becomes even more difficult with Matt Cain (5-2, 2.79 ERA) on the mound for the Giants. The onus is on Matt Garza (2-3, 4.22 ERA) to hold down San Francisco's offense in what should be a low-scoring game -- Cain is 3-0 with a 0.73 ERA in seven starts against the Cubs.
