C.J. Wilson leaves; Giants add a run, 2-0
By Jeff Caplan
SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain got a significant bonus run in the bottom of the seventh after C.J. Wilson left the game with a blister on his finger.
Wilson walke Cody Ross to lead off the inning. Pitching coach Mike Maddux made a visit to the mound and immediately signaled to the dugout that something was wrong. Wilson, who made one mistake in the game, a high fastball that Edgar Renteria deposited over the left-field wall, had to leave.
Left-hander Darren Oliver came in and quickly got Aubrey Huff on a grounder to first, but Ross advaned to second, which proved costly. Juan Uribe then dropped a looper into right that scored Ross for a 2-0 lead.
Cain, who has allowed just four hits, is back on the mound for the top of the eight, six outs away from giving the Giants a 2-0 lead in the World Series.
