Players of the night

Pitching

Matt Cain - Giants
Vs. Pirates
CG, 3 H, 0 ER, 4 K

Quite a one-two punch the Giants have built, huh? If fantasy owners build a pitching staff as well as Brian Sabean, they're bound to have plenty of success. Especially this year.

Cain is tied for the league lead in wins with 12. Teammate Tim Lincecum is right behind him with 11. Lincecum leads the NL in strikeouts, Cain is in the top 15. Cain leads the NL in ERA, Lincecum is fourth.

Just as they've carried San Francisco this season - it's amazing a team with an offense that bad is nine games over .500 - Cain and Lincecum are sure to carry any fantasy team.

More, after the jump...

Hitting

1B Miguel Cabrera - Tigers
@ Rangers
4-6, 1 HR, 1 R, 4 RBI

If you've been paying attention, this is nothing new for Cabrera. He's been scorching this month, to the tune of a .337 average and .940 OPS. It may be a little surprising, though, that yesterday's homer was only his fourth of the month. While Cabrera has been mashing all year, his powers numbers are down some.

What's funny is that Cabrera's fantastic June falls right in line with his season averages of .333/.397/.554.

He's one of the best hitters in the game, and will be for a long time.
