Beat my old team or I’ll beat you.Yikes.
The 25-year-old flame-throwing righty pitched a four-hitter Monday night on the heels on a crappy 3-7 road trip to bring his record to 11-3 and lower his ERA to 2.30. The team's 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates was a welcome sight, with Lincecum rebounding from a loss to the Atlanta Braves on the 22nd where he was roughed up over five innings for four runs on seven hits with two walks. Nevertheless, he struck out nine that game.
For the Giants, this marks the first time in the history of the earned run (1912) that any hurler from their club has fooled fifteen guys without letting anyone cross the plate. Impressive.
Well on his way to a second consecutive Natonal League Cy Young award, Timmy walked three, but fanned more than ten batters for the sixth time this season and the 17th in his short career. So, why even vote for the NL Cy Young this year? There's no point. If the kid continues to throw this well, he'll run away with it, hands down.
