Three-time All-Star Matt Cain will try to collect his first victory of the 2014 season, as the San Francisco Giants begin a three- game set against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.
The Giants might have been salivating at the thought of facing Hyun-Jin Ryu on Thursday, having knocked him around for eight runs in two innings in their first meeting this season.
Hyun-Jin Ryu hurled seven scoreless innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants to avoid a three-game sweep at AT&T Park.
Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched for his country, doing anything he could from afar to lift spirits in South Korea after all the lives lost during a devastating ferry accident.

Sonny Gray tries to continue his impressive start to the season on Friday when the Oakland Athletics start a three-game series against the Houston Astros at O.co Coliseum.
If there is a fast track to finding success on the pitching mound, Jesse Chavez never found it.
ANAHEIM, Calif.-A win is a win. And Mike Scioscia figures his Angels need at least 90 of them to have a shot at returning to the postseason for the first time since 2009.
The Oakland Athletics lost a chance to complete a sweep of the Angels when Chris Iannetta delivered a two-out walk-off homer to dead center field in the bottom of the 12th inning to give Los Angeles a 5-4 win Wednesday night.

MLB BERGER
Eric Berger was looking forward to playing with the River Cats, a chance to pitch in front of family and friends. The Bee’s 2004 Player of the Year from Woodcreek High School, Berger was released by the A’s last Thursday, the eve of the Triple-A River Cats’ homeopener at Raley Field. The 27-year-old left-hander had allowed one run and three hits in 1 1/3 innings for Sacramento.
Tyler Ladendorf had three hits and three RBIs, and Fernando Nieve had his second save in two nights to lead the River Cats to a 5-4 comeback victory over the Salt Lake Bees on Saturday night at Raley Field.
