With Buster and Angel on the bench and Tim Lincecum on the mound, our beloved Giants found yet another winning formula and grabbed victory #42, 6-4 over the Mets. That puts us at a ridiculous .667 winning percentage. Life is good. Bring on the next victims!
Start #13 Win! (5-4, 4.97) 6 innings 6 hits 3 runs 3 earned 1 walks 6 strikeouts 2 hr
After a terrifying first inning, Tim actually did pretty damn good. It was the new Tim all the way: kinda wild, lotsa base runners, but kinda pesky and hard to square up. Actually it was only Curtis Granderson that did the damage with 2 homers and 3 RBI. Considering how poor Timmeh's last start was, this one feels just fine. Not over powering, but good enough for a team as talented as the Giants. I was frankly surprised at the intensity of the anti-Tim sentiment right after the horrid job in Cincinnati. Patience people, we have a long way to go. Bottom line is that the Giants are 9-4 when Tim starts and that is SWEET for a #4 starter.
Cool win. Terrible start, no Buster, no Angel, no Pence hits, no Morse hits, very shaky Affeldt and .... WE STILL FIND A WAY TO WIN !
Gregor, Pablo and Brandon C. each had multiple hit games. Romo looked wicked with an 11 pitch 3 out save. What can I say? We are good.
