Tim Lincecum loses track of outs (Video)
Tim Lincecum had a forgetful moment on Friday. The Giants pitcher got Phillies pitcher Vance Worley to ground out in the bottom of the third inning for the second out, but Lincecum began walking off the mound as if the inning were over. He soon realized he had one more out to go and returned to the hill to get Jimmy Rollins to ground out to end the inning.
Forgetful moments aside, this was the second straight strong showing by Lincecum since manager Bruce Bochy threatened to remove him from the rotation. He went 7 innings allowing 5 hits and 2 runs while striking out 6 for the win. He’s now 4-10 on the season.
