A great opening day for the Orange and Black

Tim Lincecum was superb tonight with seven shutout innings, seven Ks, four hits and two BBs. Chris Haft of mlb.com gets right to the point --Lincecum, the two-time reigning National League Cy Young Award winner, improved to 34-2 lifetime when San Francisco scores at least three runs behind him.

A poster named Al corrected me by noting that Tim gave up no walks.

Henry Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle notes that Rowand, Bowker and Sandoval all made fine plays in the field--In his first game as the regular right fielder, Bowker made a stellar running catch in the claustrophobic right-field corner for an out on J.R. Towles. Aaron Rowand took an 0-for-5 but ran into the farthest reaches of deep center to rob new Astro Pedro Feliz of extra bases. Pablo Sandoval made a nifty running catch in short left with his back to the plate to return Geoff Blum to the dugout.
