Lincecum Pitches 3 Hit, Complete Game Shutout

By Melissa Felkins

Lincecum threw his 5th career shutout and 8th complete game on Saturday against the Oakland A’s. The Giants won 3-0 and Timmy only allowed 3 hits during the entire game. In fact, between the 1st and 8th inning, he retired 21 consecutive batters. He didn’t strike out a ton of batters, but pitched well and allowed his defense to back him up…and they did. He was simply masterful.

The hitters got a run in the first and added on 2 more insurance runs in the 8th…but turns out, we didn’t even need them. Good to see us scoring even when we don’t have to score.
