After the Giants killed it at the All Star game they continued their dominance and began the second half of the season winning 7 of their first 9 games. They began by sweeping the Houston Astros at home, if the Astros didn’t have to play us ever again I think they’d be relieved, and then the Giants went on the road to face the Braves and the Phillies where they took 2 out of 3 games from each team. The team has been able to get off to such a hot start after the All Star break because of their pitching and the bats of The Melk Man, Buster, and Crawford…. yes you heard me right, Brandon Crawford.
It was no surprise to Giants fans when Tim Lincecum got off to a rough start to begin the 2012 season, it’s how he usually begins the year, but to be struggling this far into May has the whole Giants community on their toes. He finally seemed to be getting on track Tuesday versus the Rockies until one bad inning where he gave up 3 runs, he ended his day going 7 innings and getting the no decision. Giants fans are holding their breath when Timmy makes his next start on Sunday versus our Bay Area rival the Oakland A’s to kick off inter league.
