Start # 33 ND (10-15) 6 innings (92 pitches) 4 hits 4 runs 2 walks 4 strikeouts
The Giants racked up win #93 with a stirring come-from-behind victory, 7-5, over the San Diego Pudres. Big ninth inning home runs by Xavier Nady and Hunter Pence ( off the previously untouchable Huston Street ) served notice that our bats can do some major damage in the post season. However, fallen ace, Tim Lincecum, did little to ease doubts or answer the BIG question.
Timmy's numbers in his last regular season ( and possibly last start of 2012 period ) don't seem so bad. The four hits allowed looks good ... except three of them were home runs! Two walks isn't terrible ... except they led to 2 runs and many stolen bases! The worst part of tonight's start was that after we got him a lead, he gave it right up. Then, after we tied it, he gave up more runs. This did not seem like a guy ready for a HUGE post season start.
Good thing I don't have to be the one to pick which starter gets passed over... I'm really not sure...
