Tim Lincecum was just filthy last night. He had the hitters of Texas looking like a minor league team. His matchup with the leading AL MVP candidate Josh Hamilton showed just how great Lincecum was. He kept Hamilton off balance with a dose of fastballs and change-ups. Hamilton didn't have a clue what was coming next and eventually struck out. Hamilton was but only one victim for “The Freak”, Lincecum would go on to pitch 8 innings and strikeout 8 batters while allowing only one earned run. It was a masterful performance but almost matched by Texas ace Cliff Lee. Lee would only make one mistake but it was costly in pitching to a former World Series hero, Edgar Renteria. The former Florida Marlin hero had been swinging a hot bat of late and was able to connect on a cutter from Lee and drove it deep into the Texas sky. "I was only looking for one pitch," Renteria said. And that was the one.
You’re not just a bunch of guys Cody you are World Series champions now.
