Matt Cain dominates in final career start

Giants Lose No. 1 Pick in 2018 MLB Draft to Tigers Thanks to Pablo Sandoval's Walk-off Home Run

Giants Lose No. 1 Pick in 2018 MLB Draft to Tigers Thanks to Pablo Sandoval's Walk-off Home Run

Sandoval's homer came off of Phil Maton, and it might have cost the Giants the chance to pick first in next year's draft. He gave up two hits, struck out four and walked one.

Cain's decorated 13-year career came to an end and the home crowd at AT&T Park saluted the right-hander, a cornerstone of the team's championship era who pitched the only ideal game in franchise history. Sandoval finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon, also knocking in a run in the second on a ground out. Unfortunately, after a route around the baseball world, Pablo Sandoval has found his way back home to the Giants and delivered a walk-off home run to end what was a miserable season by the bay.

A loss guaranteed the Giants would finish at 63-99, at least one game clear of the Detroit Tigers, who did an admirable impression of the Philadelphia 76ers by entering the last day of the regular season with just six wins in their last 30 games.

The event is among the most well-attended on the calendar, with some 135,000 spectators turning up on race day past year , second only to Silverstone's 139,000.

The win ended a five-game losing streak for the Padres and kept their hopes alive of winning all six series from the Giants this season. Buster Posey, the fifth overall pick in the 2008 draft, hit cleanup and smashed a leadoff double in the bottom of the second and then drew a walk in the bottom of the fourth.

Sunday: They'll play their season finale at 3:07 p.m. Johnny Cueto (8-8, 4.43) is scheduled to start for Giants. All San Francisco had to do was lose to clinch that top pick! Carlos Asuaje, Yangervis Solarte, Christian Villanueva, Cory Spangenberg and Hunter Renfroe each added base hits of their own in the win for San Diego. Instead, the Giants were treated to a vintage performance from their former ace.

Cain took a curtain call and exited with a 1-0 lead.
