"And tonight the Giants got their closer back."The Dodgers' book on Lincecum is to take pitches and work him deep into counts. Lincecum was not crisp today, but he was effective most of the way. Still he was at 50 pitches before the 3rd inning, labored through one of those annoying innings where everybody seemed to get a base hit. (Belt had an error) And the Dodgers scored three.
But the Boys battled back. Timmy bonked Uribe and a nice little game showed up on CSN Bay Area.
Buster was 3 for 4 with a couple RBI's, Panda Bear doubled in a run, Belt got a hit, a walk, and scored a run.
Plus Brian Wilson closed out a uneventful 9th inning!
This actually looked like a sane, and well-groomed baseball team. The first non-Opening Day-with-ceremony win. Props.
On a lighter note, they found a new way to hit into a double play: Belt strikes out as Miggy gets thrown out trying to "steal" 2nd.
