Giants comeback comes up short in Atlanta

The San Francisco Giants starter Matt Cain’s struggles the third time through the lineup on the road continued Thursday against the Atlanta Braves.

Cain combined with relievers Brian Morris and Kyle Crick to allow eight runs on nine hits in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Scoring five runs over the eighth and ninth frames wasn’t enough for the Giants to erase that deficit as they fell, 12-11.

The game was delayed an hour, 26 minutes, and was San Francisco’s third loss of a four-game set in Atlanta. MLB
