In this game, it’s fair to say that Tim Lincecum had a pretty decent outing. Seven innings, five hits, two (earned) runs, two walks, six strikeouts.
And then there was Brandon Crawford, he of the five runs batted in and the grand slam. Apparently, on this road trip, Crawford is 5-for-13 with two home runs. He’s still not the best hitter around, but. It’s something, I guess. Hey, the more the Giants win, the better it’d be, right?
Eli Whiteside also drove in a run today. I don’t know what to make of it, either.
Buster Posey? Had yet another offday at first base. I smell more ridiculous logic here.
All in all, welp. It’s a win. A weird lineup with some odd narratives behind it, but a win.
