Tim Lincecum on the road

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum earned his eighth career win at Petco Park on Sunday, the most of any road venue. A list of parks other than AT&T where Lincecum has won the most:

SF GIANTS UPDATE: Solid bullpen gets a lift with Affeldt’s return, plus Lincecum, Belt notes

PrintIt’s rather amazing to consider the past 10 Giants games have been decided by a total of 11 runs. “Unbelievable, man,” manager Bruce Bochy said after Sunday’s 4-3 victory against the Padres. “I’ve been on a few runs where we’ve played tight games, but never like this.” To sustain any kind of success during that kind of run, the bullpen has to be money. Fortunately for the Giants, their relief corps has been Fort Knox. With three shutout innings Sunday, all in a one-run game, the bullpen lowered its majors-leading ERA to 1.79, with 15 walks and 48 strikeouts, a 6-2 record...

Bruce Bochy looked up at the scoreboard late in a 4-3 win over the San Diego Padres and was stunned by what he saw. No, not the fact that the Giants had exceeded their output from the previous three games… Continue Reading →

On deck: 'Freak' returns to scene of no-no

Giants' Lincecum struck out 13 while no-hitting Padres last July.

Rapid Reaction: Giants 3, Dodgers 2 (12)

SAN FRANCISCO -- A few years ago, a Josh Beckett-Tim Lincecum game would have made for a great little pitching matchup. Now, it makes for a long game. Both starting pitchers, working with diminished tools, managed to wobble their way through five innings and the bullpens took over, which is usually a good thing for the Dodgers. Not so much Tuesday night at AT&T Park. The Giants scratched out all their runs off Dodgers relievers, including rallying to tie it in the ninth inning off closer Kenley Jansen and winning it, 3-2, in the 12th off Brandon League.

Giants throw game away, lose to Diamondbacks in extras

Giants throw game away, lose to Diamondbacks in extras

The rubber match broke, and we should probably get checked out. There it is. The first "why do I even like this game?" game of the season. It's not like the other three losses were pleasant affairs, but they were garden-variety annoying. Awful fielding follies, Giants lose. Lots of homers, Giants lose. Paul Goldschmidt unhinging his jaw and eating Tim Lincecum whole, Giants lose. That was the loss column before tonight. This one, though, had everything. It had errors and missed opportunities, bloop hits and bloopier hits. It was a game that sat on you and didn't let you up. The older...

Lincecum and Giants rocked at home by Diamondbacks

After a 7-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night, Tim Lincecum blamed his seven-run outing on a mechanical bug that caused his arm angle to drop and his pitches to flatten out. It's an issue that Lincecum has dealt with before, one he can fix before his next start, he said.

Lincecum done in by Goldschmidt again

The scene is becoming all too familiar for Tim Lincecum as he watches Paul Goldschmidt launch home run after home run.

SF GIANTS UPDATE: Lincecum can solve his Goldschmidt problem

Last year, I was sitting in the Diamondbacks dugout at Chase Field many hours before the first pitch waiting to do an MLB Network hit. It was probably noontime. A group of children was at the ballpark for some sort of organized outing that included a talk from Arizona first baseman. While he waited for his time to talk, I chatted with Goldschmidt very informally about his uncanny ability to destroy Tim Lincecum — now 13-for-24 with seven homers after his three-run blast tonight. I had no notebook or pen, no tape recorder. He knew I was a San Francisco reporter, but he knew whatever we...

If Paul Goldschmidt woke up in his San Francisco hotel room Wednesday and whispered “Happy Lincecum Day,” he wouldn’t admit to it. Or come even close. Goldschmidt is cut from the same cloth as Buster Posey, and after he once… Continue Reading →

Goldschmidt bashes Lincecum again in SF Giants loss

By Henry Schulman Tim Lincecum is going to be a Giant through 2015, which means in theory he could face Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt in 10 more series, more likely six to eight. Lincecum has to solve Goldschmidt. There cannot be 20 intentional walks. Goldschmidt was not Lincecum’s sole problem in Wednesday night’s 7-3 Diamondbacks victory at AT&T Park. The mustachioed one had trouble with lots of hitters during his first home start of 2014 and allowed two homers and two triples, a first in 222 big-league starts. But it began with Goldschmidt exacting his usual 9 pounds of flesh...
