Back to the Future as Lincecum Comes to the Giants Rescue

Seems like old times as the Giants really needed a lift after they had lost 8 of 10, just put their titular MVP, Angel Pigan had to go on the DL, and have seen their once double digit lead reduced to 3 games over the Dodgers. Enter Tim Lincecum, their two-time Cy Young award winner that quite frankly most of the league doesn’t fear much any more, but with a glorious past as being unhittable when his stuff is on. Well Michael J. Fox was back in the house as Lincecum looked like he did about six years ago and not only got the much needed win for the GMen but no-hit the Padres for the second time in his career. A big win for Tim whom was only 5-5 on the year with an ERA to match at almost 5 (4.65), hardly inTIMidating. However, he put it together against San Diego who went back to the future to get a second taste of no-no pie from Lincecum. To say San Francisco needed it couldn’t be overstated as they begin a nasty stretch of games that could open the door for LA to run them down if not catch them by the All-Star Break including a series with the Reds, Cards, and Athletics. If the Giants can hold the lead into the break, get healthy, we might see them return to the spotlight but if they let the Dodgers take 1st from them, much like last year, they may not get it back.
