This one is moving along as planned. A run-down here, a walk or two there, but mostly just good pitching.
Giants starter Tim Lincecum has six strikeouts through four innings and has allowed just one hit and one walk in Thursday’s NLDS Game 1. But his offense, as usual, has not managed much of anything against Braves righty Derek Lowe.
Lowe escaped a jam in the bottom of the third, leaving two runners in scoring position with an inning-ending strikeout of Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff. It was the only major threat from either side thus far.
Thursday’s postseason nightcap is 0-0 as we head to the bottom of the fourth.
