Tim Lincecum's 100th victory

The Giants, battling to stay home for the Wild Card play-in game, finally beat the annoying Padres tonight after being swept in San Diego.

Tim Lincecum got the vic for getting the final batter out in a nightmare 7th in which Lopez and Machi looked like garbage.

It was Tim's 11th vic this year and the 100th of his career. It's the second time in 3 years that he's lost his spot in the starting rotation. 

It's going to be a tough choice to decide who's on the 25-man postseason roster. Here are the sure things, I think...

Starting pitchers -- Peavy, Bumgarner, Petit, Vogelsong, Hudson

Position players -  Belt, Panik, Posey, Pence, Sandoval, Blanco, Crawford, Susac

Relievers -- Casilla, Romo, Affeldt, Hunter Strickland

Reserves -- Arias, Ishikawa, Duffy

That leaves five spots. Bochy seems to love Juan Perez; I don't know if Michael Morse can play; Machi and Lopez looked god awful tonight; Juan Gutierrez and Eric Cordier looked bad last night in LA; Chris Dominguez had one homer in San Diego and hasn't gotten another hit.

Then there's Timmy. My guess is that he's gonna make it
