Tim Lincecum gave up three runs on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a losing effort to the Marlins in Miami Sunday.
After suffering through back to back disastrous seasons many wondered if Tim Lincecum's days as not only an elite starter as he had been for so many years but, a serviceable starter were over. Timmy however has begun to show signs of his former dominant self starting with his no-hitter back on June 25th Lincecum has allowed just four earned runs over 37.1 innings. On the season his ERA now sits at 3.68 to go with his 9-6 record and 108 strike outs over 120 innings. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
