Lincecum Helping Giants Make Playoff Push
Former Husky star Tim Lincecum has been a key cog to the San Francisco Giants' current run towards the National League West title.
Last night, Lincecum picked up the victory in a 3-1 win over Arizona, striking out 11 in seven innings, despite reportedly not feeling well. The Giants won a day game Thursday as well, beating the D-Backs 4-1, to reduce their magic number to just one.
Lincecum has, compared to his incredible standards that led to Cy Young Awards in each of his first two big-league seasons, has had a dip in form in 2010. But, he still leads the National League in strikeouts with 231 and is 16-10 with a 3.43 ERA - certainly WELL above-average numbers. Here are his 2010 stats, including a look at his recent outings. During the stretch run, he's gone 5-1 over his last six starts, with that only loss coming by a score of 2-1.
With one victory over San Diego this weekend, the Giants will be back in the postseason.
