Ted Lilly (5-1, 3.29) vs. Matt Cain (10-10, 3.11).
[Sax here again.] Watching those highlights of Chad Billingsley singlehandedly beat the Giants yesterday really has to chap a Giants' fan's hide. I mean, here's a guy that is harangued his whole career about not being an ace, and he not only strikes out seven over eight innings and holds the Giants to two runs, but he also drives in the winning runs with a 2-RBI single to right fielder Jose Guillen, who botches what could have been a fly out.
So here they go again in the second game of the three-game weekend series, with Cubs pariah Lilly going against beloved #2 starter Matt Cain. This one's gotta be in the bag, right Giants fans?
