THE GIANTS ARE TURNING TO.....THIS GUY.....TO GET THEM EVEN IN THE NLCS
The San Francisco Giants are facing a pivotal Game 4 in the NLCS and they will turn to a guy who has been the anchor of their pitching staff for the past several seasons. Tim Lincecum will get the ball for the Giants today as they trail the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in the best-of-seven NLCS.
Lincecum scuffled through a 10-15 season with a 5.18 ERA. But, he has been solid in his post-season relief appearances so far, pitchin 8.1 innings scattering 3 hits no runs and striking out nine. Giants manager Bruce Bochy has already said Barry Zito will get the ball in Game 5 for the Giants, meaning Madison Bumgarner is now relegated to the bullpen after six weeks of sub-par starts.
You can hear the game on 101.7 FM and AM 1340 at 5:00pm with the pre-game at 4:30.
