What he said.
The Reds earlier this year did that exact thing when on a Saturday they were shut down by future HOF pitcher Paul Maholm and three days later roughed up Cain, chasing him in the 7th inning where they scored 6 runs.
Before Kris Medlan became the Braves superstar pitcher du jour, Brandon Beachy was leading the NL in ERA. Then he gave up two homers to DatDude and another to Cozart.
The Reds have won games started by Cain, Zito, Sabathia, Lohse, Garcia, Wainwright and many others.
