Tim Lincecum hit the second triple of his career this evening in a 6-3 loss agains the Miami Marlins. In case you’re wondering, I’m trying to focus on the positive side of this unfortunate loss for the San Francisco Giants. July 13, 2008 was the last and only other time Lincecum hit a triple in his career. Congrats to him!
Overall it was another upsetting night for SF Giants fans. Most people or ‘fans’ were gone by the 7th inning.
Weighing on everyone’s mind was the news of Angel Pagan‘s MRI and then the other new injuries. So many injuries… Andres Torres banged up his knee on a slide into third base in the 6th inning which was coincidentally right before Lincecum’s stand up triple. He left the game to get xrays and one of my friends was out turning in a huge stack of All Star voting ballots when she heard the paramedics being called right after Torres was helped off the field.
You can check out the game day recap on MLB for all of the relevant stats from the game. I’m just sitting here perplexed about the additional injuries and our bullpen falling apart right when our starting pitching started getting on track. I’ll make some additional comments in the morning when my head is a little clearer.
I’m going to sleep hoping we can see the Giants pull off a win tomorrow and Sunday to at least split the series. It’s upsetting to watch a team as good as the San Francisco Giants lose to a team with the worst record in baseball. But it happens. Let’s just hope this streak doesn’t continue.
