Instant O Mo': The Giants' Best Offense Since Sliced Bread

Try as the G-men might, they didn't quite have the strength to blow little Timmy's gem. Lincecum went six strong, allowing a run on seven hits with one walk and seven punchouts. Great to have him filthy without tearing gun show basepath tickets.

Even though the beach boy sent good vibrations to the Padre hitters' wood in the top of the ninth to blow the save, it wasn't too much for Instant O Mo' to overcome single handedly.

Most NL teams can figure out how to score a run with a speedy bugger like Velez on second base and nobody out. But nah, small ball is for suckers.

Molina sent his second rocket into orbit of the night in the bottom of the 11th, and that was that, win number two. Cake.

Other positive notes: Hennessey finally gettin' it done, tossing two scoreless for the win; Eugenio getting the pinch-hit and stealing the bag to set up a ***potential*** game winning score; our prized off-season acquisition nearly earning the yellow Mexican headwear.

Here's to Sanchez lasting at least five innings in the rubber match.
