Lincecum was awesome tonight. Retired 21 straight at one point. And his last two pitches hit 95 and 96 in the ninth inning.
21 straight was his career high. He hit 130 pitches which was the highest pitch count of any pitcher in a game so far this year, yet he still hit his max speed for the last few pitches. Big time Timmy Jimm is back!
Yeah, the radio announcers discussed the numbers prior to the opening pitch. We had him dismissed after the 3rd inning. They crept up a bit, game is 8-4. Asdrubel Cabrera with his 2nd home run of the day, 9th on the year, 30th RBI, quietly a nice quarter start for a SS.
thankfully we have 7 starting pitchers who can go out there and pitch a decent game at least....and that Choo has finally started to hit well consistently. I would like to see them shuffle the lineup a bit when Sizemore gets back with Brantley leading off, Sizemore hitting 3rd, and Santana sliding down to 7th (though that may be too many lefties in a row).
I agree with the first two proposals of your lineup - except Brantley is too good to have batting that late. Why was LaPorta out today? Doesn't matter, was just wondering. Great sweep of a first place team. The mission continues.
