Starting pitcher: M.C. O'Connor
That's a Game Score of 80 for all you nerds who keep track of that stuff. The phenom from Oakland got a taste of NL ball when The Timster roped an RBI single off him in the 5th. You could practically hear Tim riposting from first base, "that's how we roll in our yard, dawg." Ain't it sweet? Clever at-bat by the Panda, bunting to get it started, and red-hot Gomer drove home the final nail. But it was The Franchise tonight, taking a page from the Book of Cain--First Pitch Curveball--and befuddling the Oak-men with an insouciant efficiency. I think this Lincecum kid is pretty damn good. A few more times around the league and this young fellow is going to get noticed, you mark my words.
