"I really screwed us over"

That's Tim Lincecum, who knows a thing or 3 about must-win games. Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area is writing about a possible banishment to the pen -- which imploded today, giving up 11 runs in less than 3 innings.Fortunately, the Dodgers also got hammered, 11-3, by the Mets. Here's the key part about Tim -- 

Lincecum’s six-run, four-walk performance over 2 2/3 innings in Saturday’s 6-2 loss to the Nationals was the second shortest start out of 246 in his major league career. In his last six starts, he has a 9.49 ERA and a super-sized 2.27 WHIP that includes 41 hits allowed in 24 2/3 innings.
Lincecum called his start Saturday “horses***” and that he “I kind of screwed us over. I mean, I really screwed us over.”
Said Bochy: “Timmy takes it so hard. He feels like he’s letting everybody down and puts added pressure on himself. Everybdoy does. You play for your teammates, your fans, your family. But Timmy’s taking it extremely hard.”
