SAN FRANCISCO — Manager Bruce Bochy isn't ready to reveal his starting pitcher for Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Cincinnati Reds.

Bochy said he has spoken to Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Lincecum about his plans for Game 3, but declined to make his decision public. He said all three pitchers would be available out of the bullpen this weekend for Games 1 and 2.

Matt Cain will start Saturday, and Madison Bumgarner on Sunday.

Cain said he hasn't been approached about the possibility of starting Game 4 on just three days rest, but added that he was "pretty sure I'd be physically fine."

Also, Cain gathered his teammates after a workout at AT&T Park, but not for an inspirational speech. Cain presented a custom orange and black watch to every Giant who was on the team when he threw a perfect game on June 13.
