What we have all been waiting for. Tim Lincecum had a 1-2-3 inning, getting Ochoa to flyout to LF on one pitch, striking out DeLaRosa swinging, and getting a hard hit linedrive out to left CF from Schierholtz. It was hard for me to get a good line on him, because he threw very few pitches in his one inning of work.....I would say maybe 7 or 8. I can tell you he throws a lot harder than he has any right to with that little body. He also threw an off-speed pitch (not sure what it was) to get DeLaRosa to look silly while waving at it to strikeout swinging. It looks like he hides the ball well. I don't think the hitters can see it until the last second.
Manager Bruce Bochy sat on the field, in a folding chair, behind a BP screen, behind homeplate while Lincecum pitched. I am sure he was trying not to show too much emotion, but when the inning was over Bochy walked back to the dugout with a smirk on his face and slightly shaking his head. I took that to mean he was impressed.
