Lincecum Roundup: Domination Over Braves
If it wasn't for Roy Halladay's no-hitter for the Phillies one day earlier, people might be talking about Tim Lincecum's pitching performance for the Giants in game one of the NLDS last night was the greatest postseason outing since ...
Either way, it was tremendous as Lincecum struck out 14 in a two-hit shutout of the Atlanta Braves to lead the Giants to a 1-0 win. Lincecum, who pitched at the UW from 2004-06 and won the NY Cy Young Award the last two years, was pitching in the postseason for the first time as the Giants made the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons.
Here's a roundup of some of the news coverage of Lincecum's night:
• First a game story from the AP, here at gohuskies.com.
• Plenty of comments (all good!) from his Giants teammates in this story from the San Francisco Chronicle.
• The San Jose Mercury-News' Mark Purdy gives an overview of the scene in San Francisco.
• The Sacramento Bee's Marcus Breton stops just short of calling Lincecum a god.
• Tom Verducci of SI.com, who also worked the game for TBS television, has some interesting breakdowns of Lincecum's night.
• Here's the view from Atlanta, from the Journal-Constitution.
• ESPN.com has this look from a statistical standpoint, including mention that the Braves swung and missed an amazing 31 times vs. Timmy.
• Finally, the USA Today wonders whether Lincecum's outing was more impressive than Halladay's?
