Lincecum brings back 2010 memories

Lincecum brings back 2010 memories · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes

Leave it to Tim Lincecum to put the Giants back on track. As manager Bruce Bochy said, "When he's had to turn it up a notch, he can do it."

The Giants experienced one of those old-fashioned victories on Wednesday, circa 2010. Fabulous starting pitching, able relief and barely enough offense. It was 2-0 over the Mets, and Lincecum took center stage in the Big Apple. He tossed seven shutout innings while striking out 12 batters, including the final five in a row.

Make that 29 career double-digit strikeout games for Lincecum, most by a Giants in modern history (since 1900), breaking a tie with Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson.

Through seven innings, Lincecum had thrown 127 pitches, which is why manager Bruce Bochy went to the bullpen. For the final two innings, Bochy used four pitchers: Rafael Ramirez, Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo in the eighth and closer Brian Wilson in the ninth.

The just enough offense was led by Aubrey Huff. One night after his 10th-inning homer beat the Mets, he collected three hits. Pat Burrell and Mike Fontenot drove in the Giants' runs in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively.
