Seventh Inning: Halladay and Lincecum Plow Through Seventh

Cody Ross finally got out, grounding it to Polanco for his first non-home run all game. Bruce Bochy then made his seventh inning decision in keeping Tim Lincecum in the game despite 101 pitches through six. He was retired easily before Andres Torres popped up into no-man’s land in left, landing himself on first for Freddy Sanchez. A severed bat later, and Halladay got Sanchez swinging. Halladay’s night is probably over at 105 pitches. 7 innings, 8 hits, 4 runs, no walks, 7 strikeouts, 2 Cody Ross’s, multiple blown calls from Derryl Cousins.

God Bless America interlude!

Lincecum took the mound again in the bottom of the inning, staring straight into the eyes of pinch-hitter Domonic Brown. He led the rookie off with a changeup that Brown flailed at and after fouling off a few tough pitches, grounded out softly to short. Back to the top of the order, Shane swung at a few bad pitches and struck out in a gift basket to Timmy. As the Phillies hitters continued unraveling, Placido Polanco grounded out to Uribe to end the inning. Time is running out.

Grossly 4-3 Giants.
