Matt Cain works around Panda's error, Game 5 still scoreless

This might become the first real pitchers' duel of what might have been a series full of them; after two innings, the game is scoreless and both starting pitchers, Mathew Latos and Matthew Cain, have looked sharp. Early on, though, Cain hasn't been getting a great deal of help from his defense. In the bottom of the first, Zack Cozart reached on an infield single that might have been turned into an out.

And in the bottom of the second, Scott Rolen led off and reached safely on this play:

You'll get 'em next time, Panda.

No problem for Cain, though. The next batter, Ryan Hanigan, rolled into an easy 6-4-3 double play. And Cain finished off the Reds by striking out Drew Stubbs looking.

Heading into the third inning, this one's still scoreless.
