1. To be overlooked despite outstanding performance due to being overshadowed by teammates thanks to the ignorance of the media, such what frequently happens to San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain after pitching a good game.
2. Alternatively, it can refer to having one's good work spoiled by teammates' incompetence, such as when Matt Cain gives up only two runs but nonetheless loses due to a lack of run support.
Example 1: I discovered a cure for cancer, but my boss took all the credit. I got Cained.
Example 2: I spent months setting up the experiments, but my labmate Cained me by accidentally deleting all the data.
