LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) –Matt Cain scattered five hits over six innings, Aubrey Huff and Freddy Sanchez drove in three runs each and the San Francisco Giants defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-0 Saturday for their first win of the season.
Miguel Tejada added two RBIs for the defending World Series champions, who had committed five errors in dropping a pair of one-run games to the rival Dodgers. But they backed Cain with ample offense and clean defense to avoid equaling their worst start since moving to San Francisco in 1958.
Cain (1-0) struck out three and walked none, picking up where he left off last season as one of the Giants’ most consistent starters.
Ted Lilly (0-1) gave up four runs and six hits in 4 2-3 innings, struck out three and walked one for the Dodgers.
