Cain to Start Opening Day for the Giants

Matt Cain will open the season for the world champion San Francisco Giants. Tim Lincecum has started the previous three Opening Days for SF.

This will be Cain’s first opener for the Giants. Juan Marichal holds the Giants record starting 10 openers, including six in a row from 1964-69.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy did not reveal the order of the rest of the rotation, but Cain is also in line to start April 7, the day of the ring ceremony.
