Game Recap: SF 3, HOU 1

Missed bunts. Overthrows. Missed catches. Passed Balls. This was a messy, messy game. And up until the 7th inning, it was a pretty boring game too. The turning point was a great at-bat from Juan Uribe. With one out and a runner on, Uribe was quickly behind in the count 0-2. But he fought back, working the count and fouling pitches off, and drew a walk after an 11 pitch at-bat. A single and a groundout from Burrell and Sandoval, respectively, brought in the two runs the Giants would need to take the lead and eventually win the game.

Lincecum's line will read 8 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K. A very, very good start from him. He's definitely bounced back from the string of 4 starts where he really struggled but it's clear that he's not all the way back to being as dominant as he can be.

One more thing. What the hell are the Astros thinking???? They are letting their young catching prospect play catcher??? In his first major league game?? Hahahahaha, I pity them. They are so stupid. In all seriousness, no more of this nonsense where Renteria or Molina being in the lineup means less playing time for Buster Posey. It needs to stop.
