OK, I'll take some blame. After all, I did say that Tim Lincecum had reached his low point for the season (that is what "nadiral" means, just in case you were wondering) last time I posted. Well, I was wrong. Tim did even worse and the Giants ended up getting trounced, 8-2, by the fricking puds.
With a line like this: 3.2 innings ( a new low!), 8 hits, 6 runs, 5 earned, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts you have to really stretch to find some positives. The best I can do is that all the hits were singles...I know, not very reassuring. Basically, Tim coughed up a big game to the bad guys. It was a chance for the "new" Giants to change the tide against a worthy foe. Lincecum failed to meet that challenge and the puds leave town a little stronger.
If you are searching for some more good vibes you call always look to The Kid. Buster blasted a homer to center for 2 RBI's as well as two singles.
How on Earth does that team win with, not one, but two Hairstons running around out there?
Wonders never cease.
