NLCS Game Six: Lincecum in for relief, then pulled

On only one day of rest, Bruce Bochy went to Tim Lincecum to pitch the eighth inning of a 3-2 game. Timmy got Jayson Werth out on a pitch in the dirt that he flailed at. Shane Victorino worked a terrific at-bat that resulted in a base hit to right field. Raul Ibanez followed with a single to right center. With runners on first and second and regretting his decision, Bochy made the way to the mound to yank his Cy Young pitcher for his closer Brian Wilson. Wilson will face Carlos Ruiz and is expected to pitch the ninth as well. Five outs.

I’m scared. Hold me.

3-2 Giants.
