Scoreboard Watching: August 28, 2014

I guess Timmah is finally going to find time to wash his hair, as Yusmerio Petit gets the nod instead of Tim Lincecum in today's Giants-Rockies game. The Rockies' Jordan Lyles (6-1, 4.05) faces off against Petit (3-3, 3.59), who is getting heralded for retiring 38 consecutive batters (seven batters shy of the MLB record, set by Mark Buerhle in 2009). But hold on there, Tex: In six appearances this year as a starter, Petit is 1-2 with a 6.32 ERA. On the other hand, Lincecum has allowed 26 ER in his last 24.2 IP; so, Bruce Bochy has Petit fours'd into the game. 12.45p, first pitch.

I sure hope the Rockies lay down for us too

Giants won. Petit broke Buehrle's record.

Le sigh.
