Just like in their other two meetings this year, Clayton Kershaw outdueled Tim Lincecum by a run, as the Dodgers scored the tying run in the eighth (Juan Rivera singling in Matt Kemp) and the winning run in the ninth (Jamey Carroll with a FC infield hit to second, scoring PR Eugenio "The Black Hole" Velez from third).
Lincecum went eight innings, giving up an earned run and fanning nine. But let's face it, Kershaw is better, tonight going an equal eight innings, giving up no ER in fanning his nine. Oh, and Kershaw got the win, while Lincecum got nothing. Give the Dodgers the victory, but you gotta give Kershaw the Cy.
Oh, and how's this for awesomeness: SoSG had THREE regulars, Mr F/Fanerman, Orlando Zepeda, and Pistol Pete Reiser, in the house tonight. Awesome representation, boys. Would have paid to see that one live, and hear the crowd go hush like an old lady rabbit in a rocking chair. Goodnight, Giants.
