Tonight's gagfest was pretty much over after about 8 minutes into the game. Right about when Paul Goldschmidt hit his gratuitous 3 run homer off the basically worthless Tim Lincecum. The bullpen was tough after Lincecum's early departure and we got a couple more long balls, however it wasn't enough as we lost 7-3. At least the doggers lost too.
Start #2 Loss (0-1) 4 innings 7 hits 7 runs 7 earned 1 walks 5 strikeouts 2hr
Tim's performance was like picking off an old scab; painful, a really bad idea and it may leave a scar. Yuck, yuck, yuck. All the memories of an INCREDIBLY hittable Tim come pouring back. I'm not talking about the Goldschmidt psych out, I'm talking when the opposing pitcher gets excited to take a hack. It is one thing to watch bad pitching, tonight was more like watching a suicide bombing. Again, I say, triple yuck!
HIGH and/or LOWLIGHTS:
Morse's homer (#2) measured out at 446 ft. That is an impressive clout. Pagan's three hits leave him at a crisp .462. Buster only got two hits, including homer #3, and he stands at .344. Five scoreless innings from the bullpen is sweet, except that the bullpen should never really appear for five innings. Oh well, get 'em tomorrow!
