You still worried about Tim Lincecum?
The Giants needed a win to take the series from Minnesota and they handed the ball to Tim Lincecum, who has looked decidedly human in his last 4 starts.
Like 0-2 with a 7.59 ERA in those 4 games. Panic! What should the Giants do?
Lest we forget that he had a crappy run LAST year as well. Remember how he pitched in the post season? 4-1, 2.43 ERA, 43 strikeouts in 37 innings. 7 1/3 innings per start and winning the World Series clinching Game 5 in Texas.
So how did Linecum do today? 7 shutout innings, 3 hits 12 strikeouts and 2 walks. Not bad.
