Game Wrap 4/26/2013: Padres 2 Giants 1

Tim Lincecum had a dominant start wasted by an impotent offense.  Key lines:

Angel Pagan- 2 for 4, SB(2). BA= .289.  Pagan scored the Giants only run in the first inning with a single, steal of 2B, advanced to 3B on a ground out and came home on a WP.  Posey and Belt also had 2 hit games but those 3 players had 0 for 4's space in between them that effectively killed off any incipient rallies.

Tim Lincecum- 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 9 K's.  ERA= 3.64.  Timmy gave up a leadoff single to the opposing pitcher, Cashner, in the 3'rd inning then 3 consecutive 2-out singles at the back end of the inning.  Aside from that small hiccup, he was vintage Timmy.  Unfortunately, Cashner and the Padres bullpen made it stand up.

The Loss put the Giants in 2'nd place tie with the D'Backs 2 games behind the NL West leading Rockies who beat the D'Backs 6-3.  The Dodgers topped the BrewCrew 7-5 to remain at 3.5 games behind the division leaders.  The last place Pesky Padres are 7.5 games off the pace.

Barry Zito takes the mound against Eric Stults in a 5:40 start today.
