Lincecum strikes out 7

Holy cow

The Giants are an MLB-worst 6-19 in spring training right now. But Timmy had seven strikeouts tonight against the A's in a 6-4 loss. So there's something to like.

 "It comes down to one or two pitches per inning. I just have to keep my pitches down. The ones that they're hitting are the ones that are up. Leadoff batters are locking in to some of the first pitches." -- Lincecum, on why he has alternated bad innings with good ones

Chris Haft of reports that the Dodgers won't get to see Bumgarner tomorrow night --

 For the Giants: San Francisco will borrow right-hander Chris Heston, who already has been optioned to Triple-A Sacramento, from Minor League camp to confront the Dodgers in a 7:05 p.m. PT contest at Glendale. The game can be seen on MLB.TV and is also available as an exclusive audio webcast on It's Madison Bumgarner's turn to pitch, but the Giants opted to use the Opening Night starter in a Minor League game to limit the Dodgers' familiarity with him. After all, Bumgarner conceivably will face Los Angeles quite frequently this year.
