Tim Lincecum just didn’t seem right in Cincinnati.
He seemed to slip, literally and figuratively. It was nothing like the comfort zone he found at AT&T. On the road, he lost his footing, walked five, nearly balked twice.
An all-around awkward performance as the Reds beat the Giants 4-3.
Surprising it was that close.
The Giants even held a lead for three innings. But then Lincecum ran up the pitch count and was lifted after 4 2/3 innings.
The Linceline: 4.2 ip, 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 Ks.
Overall, his ERA is 2.43, but this was not a good one tonight for the best part Filipino player in the MLB.
Good game for Marlon Byrd of the Reds who was 2-2, 2 walks, 3 RBIs, and had the game-winning home run off reliever Sergio Romo.
