No no-no for Lincecum

I was thinking it, you were thinking it.

Tim Lincecum might not give up a hit today.

Well, he did.

Nick Markakis singled with two outs in the first inning to save the Orioles from that particular indignity.

Luke Scott walked, and both runners moved up on a wild pitch. A single would have plated two runs.

Let’s not get carried away.

Adam Jones flied to right, and the rally fizzled. But hey, Lincecum won’t throw a no-hitter today.

I was thinking it, you were thinking it.

Aubrey Huff’s double in the bottom of the first inning, after Jeremy Guthrie deflected a possible double play ball that went for an infield hit, has given the Giants an early lead.

Jones misplayed Pablo Sandoval’s bases-loaded fly ball near the center field fence, allowing another run to score. However, Sandoval passed Juan Uribe as he rounded first base, giving the Orioles a much-needed gift out.

Uribe went back to tag up, proving that base-running blunders happen everywhere.

Giants 2, Orioles 0.
