I’m not sure what was worse in this game. Tim Lincecum‘s pitching, Andres Torres fielding, or the entire team’s inability to score even one single run on 7 hits. Either way, the Giants ended up blowing any opportunities to score, and Torres’ defense didn’t help keep the Braves from crossing home plate either. On the plus side, Nick Noonan looked good defensively and Brandon Belt chipped in a couple of hits tonight.
This game was televised on ESPN so you can maybe imagine their “insightful” commentary made for a fun night on Twitter. In case you were lucky enough to miss it, maybe this will help explain (as much as anything could explain).
Tim Lincecum is clearly not staying in his door.

Clear? Yeah, me either.
Of note, Jake Dunning made his Major League debut. He pitched one inning and gave up one hit. Not bad for his first time out.
The Giants return to AT&T Park tomorrow for a 3-game series with the Padres.
