The Giants start the game off with a bang. Renteria got a bunt single. Then Aurilia got a hit, and then Bengie Molina hit a 3 run home run.
Lincecum doesn’t seem to look like he has his best stuff early on in the game. Derrek Lee hits a double off Lincecum in the bottom of the 2nd inning. The Cubs then got some productive outs to move Lee over and score him. After 2 innings the Giants lead 3-1.
It’s a 3-2 lead for the Giants heading into the top of the 8th. The Cubs still have some good players on the bench. They sat some good players today against Lincecum. Probably figured today is a good day to take off instead of getting themselves in a slump against Lincecum. The Giants haven’t got a runner in scoring position since the 2nd inning. The Giants have managed to get bases loaded in the top of the 8th inning with no outs. Aaron Rowand hit a 2 run double. Randy Winn follows up with an RBI single scoring Molina. The Giants end up scoring 3 runs in the top of the 8th. The score is now 6-2 Giants.
The game is over the Giants win 6-2 over the Cubs. The Giants and Cubs split the 2 game series in the Giants only visit to the windy city.
Tim Lincecum is the winning pitcher. Giants are now 13-12 so far in the early season.
Giants are now off to Colorado to face the Rockies. Randy Johnson and Matt Cain will get the next two starts for the Giants.
