A decent start for Matt Cain

He only gave up three runs. 

Here's the recap --

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- For Giants starter Matt Cain, his long-awaited spring debut included pregame jitters, a couple of hits at the plate and most important of all, a lot of quality pitches.
Cain actually stretched his pitch count a bit higher than anticipated and used his breaking ball effectively in an outing of 2 2/3 innings Friday night, giving the Giants reason to feel good about his progress on a night when their offense broke out for a 15-6 win over the Padres.
It was Cain's first appearance since his spring was interrupted by the removal of a cyst from his pitching arm, and catcher Buster Posey was duly impressed.
"I don't say it lightly," Posey said. "I really thought his stuff was really good."
