The 3rd Giants pitcher of the day was Tim Lincecum. He had another good news-bad news day. He had a relatively easy 6th inning, allowing a 2 out single, a fly out to RF and 2 groundballs. Then in the 7th inning he gave up a 5 pitch leadoff walk, followed by a groundball fielder's choice and a 2 run HR by Jeff Baker. The HR was hit to RCF and was not a cheapie. After the HR, Tim had a strikeout and a groundball to end the inning. As you would expect from a youngster....a little wildness and one pitch left over the plate is causing him problems when he gives up runs. BUT.....the pitches are zinging in there and he still looks like the real deal to me.
