SEATTLE -- Not exactly how the Rays wanted to begin an 11-game road trip: 0-2 in the Pacific Northwest.
Friday night's 7-0 loss had a similar flavor to Thursday night's 8-2 loss, since both featured home runs -- plenty of Mariners roundtrippers at spacious Safeco Field.

June is Corn and Cucumber Month.

SAN FRANCISCO --  Three is always a key number in baseball, as in strikes per batter and outs per inning. It's also the operative figure when Matt Cain starts for the Giants.
Since the beginning of last season, Cain is 15-0 with a 2.25 ERA when the Giants amass at least three runs for him. They scored in only one inning Friday night, but they reached Cain's magic number in that isolated instance.
Cain again spun a victory for himself and the Giants out of that relatively meager total. He rebounded from a mild slump to pitch seven resolute innings as San Francisco triumphed over the Colorado Rockies, 3-1.
