Re: 4/24/12 - Reds vs Giants
Cain has amazingly consistent lifetime stats v. righties and lefties. Righties have 2464 at bats against him. Lefties? 2465.
OPS - righties .657 against him, lefties .655.
Hits - righties 558 against him, lefties 553.
Homers - righties 58 against him, lefties 52.
Cain does tend to walk a few more lefties than righties and he strikes out more righties. His K/BB rate is 2.68 against righties and 2.02 against lefties. Edge to lefty batters over righties there.
But Reds shouldn't suffer much tonight from their lack of lefty bats. Cain is only marginally tougher against righties, if at all. Reds may suffer, however, because this guy is one fabulous pitcher.
