Tim Lincecum earned his 10th win after he gave up two runs on seven hits and four walks with two strikeouts over just five innings against the Phillies on Sunday.
Lincecum improved to 10-8 following Sunday's performance, making for his first win since July 11. Now sitting on a 4.48 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 25 starts, Lincecum has had his ups and downs this season, but has managed to own a respectable strikeout rate (8.08 K/9) along the way making him a solid contributor in that one category if nothing else. He will be on the hunt for win No. 11 when he takes on the Nationals on Saturday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jarrell Eddie will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Thursday.
The undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech, Jarrell Eddie won the D-League's Three-Point Shootout during the All-Star weekend, and will now be given the opportunity to log his first minute in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks. The team had one vacant roster spot, so no one is being sent to the Developmental League as a result of this signing. We'll have to see what the Hawks' have in mind for their new three-point threat.
