Nats Journal: Tonight’s Nationals-Braves lineups

It’s Max Scherzer’s turn to pitch again, and the Braves may be in trouble. Scherzer has not yet pitched against them this season, and in 11 starts he’s made this season facing a team for the first time, he averages more than seven innings of work with nine strikeouts and pitches to a 2.29 ERA. In his last two outings facing a team for the first time, he has pitched 18 innings, allowed one hit, and struck out 26.Read full article >>

Giants notes: Twin pitching moves on the horizon; Lincecum improved but DL-bound

SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants made no roster moves prior to Sunday’s homestand finale against the Colorado Rockies, but changes to the pitching staff are on the horizon.

Giants Splash: Lincecum move afoot, trade priorities, Sunday’s lineup

Giants Splash: Tim Lincecum came to the park Sunday morning with his pitching arm feeling not too bad after taking a line drive Saturday. Manager Bruce Bochy said two pitching moves are coming, maybe after Sunday's game, perhaps before Tuesday's game at Miami, and strongly suggested one will be Lincecum. The Giants need two spots for Matt Cain and Jake Peavy, although it's not 100 percent sure that Peavy will rejoin the rotation this week. Gametime temperature was 112 degrees and he limited his pregame routine to save energy. The club feels that adding an eighth starter would be...

Tim Lincecum hurt in Giants’ win over Rockies

Tim Lincecum might have become a painful example of that axiom during the Giants’ 7-5 victory over Colorado at AT&T Park on Saturday afternoon. A second-inning line drive off the bat of D.J. LeMahieu nailed Lincecum near his right elbow. Lincecum left the game with what the Giants called a right forearm contusion. Lincecum’s arm locked up on him immediately, but in the postgame clubhouse, he said, “It just feels like a bruise ... just a little bit stiffer than usual.” In his six previous starts before Saturday, the two-time Cy Young Award winner had a 7.00 ERA over 27...

Giants split series with convincing 7-0 win against Mariners

Matt Duffy, Norichika Aoki, and Joe Panik all had big hits, and Ryan Vogelsong pitched his best game of the year. Ryan Vogelsong, you confusing man. Earlier in the day, we all agreed that Vogelsong was the odd man out of the Giants' rotation. The larger arguments were a morass of Lincecum/Hudson/Heston disagreements, but most everyone could agree on the larger truth that Vogelsong was clearly out. Then he pitched his most convincing performance of the year, a low-drama affair with plenty of missed bats. It wasn't just that he didn't allow a run in 6⅔ innings -- it was the way he did it....

Mariners close disappointing trip with 6-2 loss to Giants

SAN FRANCISCO — An eight-game trip that offered breakthrough opportunities for the Seattle Mariners at all three venues ended Tuesday with another bit of disappointment in a 6-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Angel Pagan’s two-out bloop single in the fifth inning against Mariners starter J.A. Happ loomed as the telling blow until the Giants struck for three two-out runs in the eighth against Tom Wilhelmsen. San Francisco starter Tim Lincecum (7-3) and a relay of four relievers protected the margin over the closing innings. The Giants snapped a nine-game losing streak at AT&T Park....

Game 65, Mariners at Giants

JA Happ vs. Tim Lincecum, 12:45pm Yesterday’s game was one of those great games that makes the disappointment of this year and the past several years…well, not “worth it,” but “more tolerable.” The M’s looked like the team we thought we’d get.
