GIANTS 6 - DBACKS 3
Tim Lincecum struck out 10 Dbacks in 6.2 innings of work last night. Over his last 2 starts and 14 innings he has struck out 20 batters.
That is the Tim Lincecum we all know and love.
The offense scored six runs , behind 3 homers, in support of Timmy and allowed him to get his team leading 13th win. What makes that so special is the fact that they scored all of their runs off of the impressive rookie Barry Enright who had allowed no more than 3 runs in any of his 12 starts to begin his big league career. The Giants welcomed him to the big leagues properly tonight!
Not too much else notable went on in the game last night. Pablo Sandoval was benched and Bochy hinted that he may be benched more on the road where he is batting an atrocious .208 compared to .336 at home. I couldn't even begin to tell you what the problem is there.
Steve Decker joined the Giants coaching staff. Of course they are saying that it is to help with the young kids. Hopefully it leads to some kind of managerial change next season or the season after!
Nate Schierholtz got in the game but didn't get an AB.
