July is National Horseradish Month.

July is National Hot Dog Month.

SAN FRANCISCO --  Over the last two seasons, Matt Cain has been all but untouchable with three runs of support. Before Tuesday night, he was 17-0 with a 2.35 ERA dating back to 2010 when he had at least a trio of runs on the board.
Tuesday night brought the rare exception to the rule, as the Giants backed Cain with three runs in the first four innings but ended up falling, 5-3, to the Padres in AT&T Park. Making the loss even more difficult to swallow for Cain, he was only one pitch away from avoiding that fate.
