The return of the 2012 Lincecum?

Well, so much for pulling Tim Lincecum out after 96 pitches last week when he was no-hitting the Cubs over 5 innings. The idea being to preserve him for this start -- which blew up in Bochy's face. 

A truly awful outing, starting with a 4-run first -- which made me think of this game from April 2012, when Tim also gave up 4 first-inning runs at home, leading to a 5-2 loss.  

Tonight was worse. Tim put up zeroes in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th but fell apart in the 5th. 

Tim is now 4-4 with a 5.01 ERA. It was the crappiest out of the year; he had a lousy outing a month ago in Pittsburgh too.
