Matt Cain strong in Giants’ 3-1 win against Nationals

SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Cain threw five hitless innings for his 100th career victory and the San Francisco Giants held the Washington Nationals to three hits in a 3-1 win Sunday.

Cain (3-6) struck out five and walked four on 93 pitches. He handed off to George Kontos, who allowed a leadoff single to Bryce Harper in the sixth.

Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth inning for his 24th save. Casilla was among five Giants relievers who combined to allow one run on three hits over four innings.

NL West-leading San Francisco has won two in a row since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star break.

Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez (6-9) allowed two runs (one earned), six hits and two walks in six innings for his fourth quality start in five outings.

Cain became the sixth Giants pitcher to reach 100 wins since the franchise came to San Francisco in 1958. Juan Marichal (238), Gaylord Perry (134), Tim Lincecum (108), Kirk Rueter (105) and Mike McCormick (104) are the others.

The Giants won despite troubles hitting with runners in scoring position that have dogged them throughout the second half.

They were 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position Sunday and are batting .139 (19 for 137) in that department since the All-Star break.

They were hitless in their first 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position Sunday until Angel Pagan singled in Denard Span from third with one out in the bottom of the seventh to give San Francisco a 3-1 lead.

The Giants scored their first two runs on Pagan’s fielder’s choice grounder in the third and third baseman Anthony Rendon’s throwing error in the fifth.

Left fielder Mac Williamson left with an injury in the sixth. He dropped Chris Heisey’s flyball on the play but fired to third baseman Conor Gillaspie to force out Rendon.

NOTES

Center fielder Denard Span and shortstop Brandon Crawford were both out of the Giants’ lineup for a second consecutive day on Sunday. Span suffered a quadriceps injury beating out an infield hit on Friday. Crawford suffered a bruised thumb on a swing in the same game. Both entered late in the game and are expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday after an off day.

Rehabbing Giants third baseman Matt Duffy (out since June 21 with a left Achilles tendon strain) was scheduled to play seven innings for Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday. He played five innings on Friday.
