Giants lose second in a row

Man, it's been awhile since that happened -- over a month, actually, when the team lost seven in a row between June 26 and July 2. This was a typical loss -- if the starting pitcher (Lincecum) isn't close to perfect, the offense can't score enough. In this case, it was another 3-2 loss, the fourth time this season that they've lost by that score.

MC O'Connor at Raising (Matt Cain) points out that it's somewhat of a mystery how Timmy has gone from dominating to pretty good in a lot of his starts. And John Shea's game story for the San Francisco Chronicle notes that it was only the 8th time in 112 starts that Lincecum's allowed more than one homer.

Curiously, Edgar Renteria had a chance to repeat his 9th inning heroics from the home opener back on April 8, when he hit a 2-run homer off Billy Wagner. This time he lined the ball right back at Wagner for out No. 2.

Hey Big D,

That was my homey and blog-mate JC's post, but I certainly concur with his concerns.

Go Giants!!
