    Tim Lincecum

    The Giants’ 9-6 victory over the Phillies lasted 14 innings, involved 16 pitchers throwing 507 times to the plate, took five hours and 46 minutes, included more cramping than a track meet for septuagenarians and it finally ended 7 minutes before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning at Citizens Bank Park when Tim Lincecum really and truly recorded his first career save.

    Giants catcher Buster Posey lost the nail on his right ring finger in the sixth inning Tuesday when he was clipped by a Madison Bumgarner bouncer and is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday night’s series finale at Petco Park against the Padres.

    Houston Astros v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

  11. Hector Sanchez hits a soul-crushing home run as the Giants win

    Aug 15, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Hector Sanchez

    On the heels of a five-game winning streak, the Nationals were three outs away from reaching the .500 mark for the first time since July 19 when Rafael Soriano took the hill with a 3-1 lead in the ninth inning this afternoon against the Giants. After allowing a lead-off single to Buster Posey, Soriano got…

  12. Tim Lincecum starts and Buster Posey sits

    Apr 9, 2013, 7:49 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Here we go again: the Tim Lincecum-Buster Posey pairing the Giants did their best to avoid throughout the second half of last season was supposed to be back on this year. Manager Bruce Bochy was very clear on that both over the winter and this spring. And, yet, Hector Sanchez will catch Lincecum for the…

  13. Tim Lincecum walks seven, beats Dodgers anyway

    Apr 4, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Tim Lincecum‘s awful spring, in which he gave up 18 runs in 15 1/3 innings, only added to the Giants’ doubts about what they’d get from their two-time Cy Young winner this season. They’re probably no closer to figuring it out after Lincecum walked seven yet still defeated the Dodgers on Wednesday. Lincecum surrendered just…

  14. Everything’s jake between Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Washington Nationals

    A lot of ink was spilled last year talking about an alleged rift between Tim Lincecum and Buster Posey. One that had Hector Sanchez catching Lincecum most of the time with Posey playing first base or taking a breather. As is often the case with the opening of spring training, however, reports of any disconnect…

  18. Giants settle on Hector Sanchez as Game 3 designated hitter

    Oct 26, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Hector Sanchez

    The Giants will go with their 22-year-old backup catcher as their designated hitter in Game 3 of the World Series in Detroit on Saturday. Hector Sanchez is getting the call for the third time in the postseason. Aubrey Huff was the most likely alternative in the spot. Both of Sanchez’s previous assignments this month came…

  19. Buster Posey will do “all the catching” in World Series

    Oct 24, 2012, 7:22 PM EDT

    buster posey getty

    Giants backup catcher Hector Sanchez made one start in the NLDS against the Reds and another in the NLCS versus the Cardinals. But the 22-year-old is unlikely to catch at all during the World Series. Giants manager Bruce Bochy told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday that Buster Posey will do “all…

  21. Giants’ catcher switch a complete bust for Bruce Bochy

    Oct 18, 2012, 11:39 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum, Hector Sanchez

    The real question is why Hector Sanchez ever started catching Tim Lincecum in the first place this year. Yeah, Lincecum got off to an awful start this year with Buster Posey catching him. But who made that about Posey? Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner certainly didn’t have any problem with Posey. And Lincecum was extremely…

  22. Cardinals chase Tim Lincecum, lead 4-1 through five innings

    Adam Wainwright has some more cushion to work with going into the top of the sixth inning. The Cardinals tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and currently lead the Giants 4-1 in Game 4 of the NLCS. They got the first run after Matt Carpenter just missed a home…

    The Giants made it official after the Game 3 loss to the Cardinals, naming Tim Lincecum and Barry Zito their starters in St. Louis the next two days. Madison Bumgarner, who took the loss in Game 1 after allowing six runs in 3 2/3 innings, will spend the rest of the NLCS in the bullpen.…
