Three months after Jerome Williams was traded by the San Francisco Giants to the Chicago Cubs in 2005, Matt Cain was summoned to the Giants' starting rotation.

Cain that season got his first major-league hit off Williams, and beat him in a pitching duel.

Monday night, the pitchers will oppose each other for the first time since when the Giants visit Angel Stadium. It also will be for the first time the two teams meet since the 2002 World Series.

"This is about redemption," said the Angels' Williams (6-4, with a 4.20 earned-run average), who is 5-1 at Angel Stadium.
