…. Keep it continuous

Lincecum was wildly effective, the bats were big, late, and the Giants nailed a crucial first win in the first of two three game sets with the Dodge

rs. A six game lead in the all important loss column means the team won’t have less than a four game

bulge when the series is over.

Meanwhile, they keep winning these games in a “how did they do that?” fashion, getting lucky dribblers, missed pitches missed, and key hits just when it seems like they can’t get it done.

UPDATE: Oh well. Great game today, well-pitched by both sides, but the Dodgers eke out a ninth-inning win after coming back against Matt Cain. Jeremy Affeldt gave up a ninth-inning, lead-off triple to Adrian Gonzalez, and one pitch later, Hanley Ramirez hit another game winner against the Giants.

Tomorrow, the Giants try to solve Kershaw for the series win.

UPDATE: I was in a hurry, so I didn’t write about it yesterday, but I’m really worried about the way the Giants pitchers have been flailing the last month or so. I know every player gets in and out of his groove, but right now, you can’t watch any of their pitchers, starters or reliever, and not see him miss by a foot about once every three or four pitches. Whether they are fatigued or whatever, but this is a much different looking staff to the one that steamrolled through September 2 years ago. Somebody better get it figured out, because whether we make the postseason or not, we have one reliable starter right now.
