Two singles from Aubrey Huff and Pat Burrell (one legitimate, one flukey blooper) put runners on first and third for Juan Uribe, who hit into an easy fielder’s choice to end the inning. Roy has gotten through four innings with just 52 pitches.
In the bottom of the frame, Tim Lincecum faced the 5-6-7 hitters, walking Werth then striking out Rollins and getting a fielder’s choice from Ibanez. Carlos Ruiz came up, sending chills down the backs of Timmy and Giants fans alike. But a slow chopper ended the inning and took us into the fifth. Lincecum’s got 60 pitches and a shaky 35-25 ratio.
