Rough Day for Lincecum..

I missed most of the Giants game today cause my team was playing and when I got home I was shocked to see that Lincecum had such a rough outting. Tim Lincecum is amazing and he has some wicked stuff that has just left hitters confused and marveling over his pitching. Most of the teams that have faced Lincecum this year since his May 6th major league debut have said how good he really is. They say he does have some pure good stuff. The Pirates however hit back to back homers off the young rookie right hander after he had shut them out for the first 3 innings. Lincecum pitched 6 innings giving up 9 hits and 6 earned runs and he struck out 8 as positive note. Everyone has their good and bad days and today wasnt one of Lincecums best outtings even though he only walked 1 and struck out 8. Lincecum will bounce back though and get back to dominance he has displayed so far since his call up.
