More Orange and Black fireworks

Tim Lincecum's just gotten his 9th win after going 7 shutout innings, 107 pitches, 9 strikeouts and three hits. The Giants have now outscored the Astros 22-0 in the last two days. Jon Miller noted during the 4th inning that Giants fans gave a nice spontaneous round of applause to Russ Ortiz when he came to the plate for the first time.

My favorite Ortiz game as a Giant came when he held the Braves to one run as the starter in the deciding game of the 2002 NLDS.

Janie McCauley's game story for AP notes that Russ is now 0-4 lifetime against the Giants. She also notes that Lincecum now has 23 consecutive scoreless innings -- the longest such streak since Robb Nen racked up 25 innings in the 2000 season.

Andrew Pentis of MLB.com notes that The Franchise hasn't allowed a runner past second in his last 18 innings.

Great pitching, a budding winning streak, and the Dodgers throw one away in San Diego. What a day!
