He handed off to George Kontos, who allowed a leadoff single to Bryce Harper in the sixth.That hit me after the game was over, Cain said. I didnt think it was going to be that big of a deal but for it to take three years it feels good, it definitely feels good.Especially with the way it worked out today, we got to use everybody to be a part of it. It was definitely a win that we all needed very much.Almost everybody.Pitcher Madison Bumgarner pinch hit for Cain leading off the bottom of the fifth and hit an opposite-field double off the wall in right. Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who ran for Bumgarner, scored the winning run.Cain became the sixth Giants pitcher to reach 100 wins since the franchise came to San Francisco in 1958. Juan Marichal (238), Gaylord Perry (134), Tim Lincecum (108), Kirk Rueter (105) and Mike McCormick (104) are the others.He cant remember another time he left with a no-hitter on the line.My pitch count was already high in the fifth inning and I was laboring through most of the innings putting guys on and working out of jams, Cain said. The biggest thing was for us to find a way to win today and the bullpen did a great job, to be able to shut the door and get things done.Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 24th save.
