SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Matt Cain pitched three shutout innings in his first start of the spring and Pablo Sandoval hit a pair of RBI singles as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Wednesday.
Cain will start the second game of the regular season at Arizona. He couldn't throw in his first scheduled spring game on Saturday because of rain and instead threw 35 pitches in a covered bullpen session.
Cain gave up one hit, a second-inning double by Collin Cowgill, and struck out two.
Sandoval, slimmer after losing nearly 30 pounds during the offseason, collected his hits off Jered Weaver, who pitched four innings.
