Winning for only the second time in seven tries since the no hitter, Tim Lincecum rather surprisingly beat Francisco Liriano and the front running Pirates, 6-3. Supported by a four run first inning, Tim gave up three runs on three hits and four walks in his 5.1 innings. Not great but good enough. Obviously, the best part was the eight strike outs. That gives Tim 1482 career K's, which is the third highest ALL TIME in seven seasons. Any time you get to say ALL TIME, that is way cool.
Other nice stuff included three hits for Buster, Panda RBIs, and Sergio Romo's 31st save. It is safe to say that this game was better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick. Which makes it a nice break.
