Tonight starts the San Francisco Giants final series of the 2012 regular season. The good thing is it’s against the rival Dodgers (should make these games exciting) in Los Angeles, and the even better thing is the Giants can officially knock the Dodgers out of the Wild Card race with a win tonight!
Tim Lincecum has come off back-to-back shaky outings, but says he’s been told that he’s in the Giants playoff starting rotation. It still isn’t clear which game he will start, but most of the media (including myself) speculates that Lincecum will be the 3rd starter, behind Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner (Barry Zito likely #4).
Outfielder Hunter Pence is in the midst of a hot streak, and looks to keep it going against the Dodgers tonight, and more importantly, into the playoffs! Pence has 3 homers and 8 RBI in his last 4 games. His average hasn’t been anything spectacular since putting on the orange and black, but he’s a RBI machine! Pence has 45 RBI in his 56 games as a Giant!
