Game Wrap 8/24/2013: Giants 6 Pirates 3

The BABIP gods finally smiled on the Giants in the first inning as they parlayed a seemingly endless string of seeing-eye grounders and infield dribblers into a 4-0 lead that stood up.  Key Lines:

Buster Posey- 3 for 5.  BA= .305.  No dingers, but Buster is hitting .364 over his last 10 games.

Hector Sanchez- 1 for 2, BB, HBP.  BA= .234.  The Hector continues to be effective at the plate.  The HBP was a two-seam scud that took one skip in the dirt and nailed his left ankle.  It looked painful!

Gregor Blanco- 2 for 4.  BA= .252.  Blanco recovers from his 3 K game.

Tim Lincecum- 5.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 8 K's.  ERA= 4.55.  Timmy had 4 strong innings before giving up a long HR in the 5'th to Gary Sanchez, the first of his career.  He came out of he game after a 1-out walk to McCutchen followed by a Pedro Alvarez double in the 6'th.

Sergio Romo- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Save(31).  ERA= 2.66.   Romo now has 6 scoreless appearances in a row.

Ryan Vogelsong tries for a series split today facing AJ Burnett.
