Matt Cain dominates in final career start

Cueto, like most Giants' starters, didn't receive much help from his defense, as outfielders played a part in allowing the first four hitters of the game to reach with base hits.

Over the last four weeks, San Francisco waded through two dozen meaningless contests amidst the most terrible season in franchise history only to reach the month of October with a result to play for.

Pablo Sandoval fittingly ended the Giants' 2017 season on Sunday afternoon, drilling a walk-off solo home run in the ninth inning against Padres reliever Phil Maton.

After Cory Spangenberg singled pinch-runner Matt Szczur to third, Dyson struck out Hunter Renfroe before Hedges' liner to right-center barely eluded right fielder Pence, easily scoring both baserunners for a 3-2 lead.

After having announced his retirement earlier in the week, Cain shut out the Padres on two hits over five innings in his first outing since August 29. Jhoulys Chacin went six innings, giving up one run on five hits, walking a pair and striking out six, not factoring in the decision.

Stratton recorded a quality start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sep.

Unlike the Tigers, who have already fired manager Brad Ausmus and had Andrew Romine play all nine positions in their Saturday win, the Giants were determined to fight until the end.

Tigers clinch No. 1 pick with a loss and a Giants win.

Tupelo's Chris Stratton made one last pitch to be in the San Francisco Giants' rotation next spring.

Fans, media, teammates and more took to Twitter to appreciate Cain's storied Giants career.

He has a career record of 104-118 with a 3.69 ERA, and on June 13, 2012, Cain pitched a flawless game against the Houston Astros.
