SAN FRANCISCO -

AP - Matt Cain became the first Giants pitcher to allow nine runs in an inning since 1902 when Matt Carpenter and the St. Louis Cardinals tagged him Sunday in a 14-3 romp over San Francisco.
    
After Cain and the Giants received their 2012 World Series rings before the game, they got trounced.
    
The Cardinals chased Cain (0-1) while scoring nine times in the fourth inning. The last two runs came home on Carlos Beltran's single off reliever Jose Mijares.
    
According to research by the Elias Sports Bureau provided by the team, Cain was the first Giants pitcher to give up so many runs in a single inning since John Cronin on Sept. 27, 1902, in the second game of New York's doubleheader against Brooklyn.
