4th career SHUTOUT : 9 innings, 6 hits (all singles!), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts.
Tim only allowed the Mets three runners in scoring position and kept Pagan, Wright and Davis off the bases entirely. Throw in a big hit by the Panda (no kidding, an actual RBI!) and this one was ours all the way.Tim Lincecum delivered much more than a spectacular (game score 79) SHUTOUT tonight. He gave us back our legitimacy. I'm sure I saw it. Right at the very end, after a nifty Sanchez play to end the game. Victorious pitcher and catcher exchanged a quick, sly grin. Like they knew something nobody else did. This picture almost captured it.
Did you realize that was the first time Tim and Buster were batterymates? What do you think those two have planned for us?
