Win!

Tim Lincecum was fantastic tonight: 8 innings pitched, one walk, 11 strikeouts and no runs allowed.  From his first pitch, which had Jordan Schafer grounding out, to his final one, a curveball to Brian Bixler, The Freak had a solid rhythm going all evening.  In the end it took 12 innings, and a single by Hector Sanchez, to send everyone home happy.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT…LHP Madison Bumgarner allowed 1 run and 2 hits in 7.0 innings last night…that marked the 4th time that he’s pitched at least 7.0 frames and allowed 3-or- fewer hits and one-or-fewer runs in a start this season…that’s tied with Matt Cain for the 2nd-most such starts in the Majors this year behind NYM’s R.A.
