Tim Lincecum appeared to find himself while pitching in the bullpen this postseason, but that success hasn’t translated in his start tonight in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cardinals.
Pitching exclusively out of the stretch, Lincecum allowed a single to Jon Jay and a walk to Matt Carpenter to begin the game before Matt Holliday delivered an RBI single. Angel Pagan made a nice running catch on a sinking liner off the bat of Allen Craig for the first out, but Carpenter scored on the play to make it 2-0.
The Cardinals had the chance for more in the bottom of the first, but Lincecum got Yadier Molina to fly out for the second out and worked around a single by David Freese to get Daniel Descalso to strike out swinging.
Coming into tonight’s start, Lincecum had allowed just one run on three hits over 6 1/3 relief innings this postseason to go along with nine strikeouts and one walk.
