San Francisco Giants tickets are averaging $47.16 for the series, which is 43 percent below the Giants season average at AT&T Park.

The final game of the series is the most expensive. Tickets are currently averaging $67.48 for the game with an $18 get-in price.

He’s been stellar in the last month, and has lowered his ERA below 4.00, when it seemed like his career as a starter might be coming to a close. Lincecum has worked on commanding the strike zone, and attacking the bottom of the zone, to induce more ground balls. He has a 2.76 ERA in his last five starts.
