Before the game the guy behind me was complaining that Torres was in the game. After two great catches and a homer, he was a big Torres supporter. Funny how fickle people can be.
SAN FRANCISCO -- For somebody who's allegedly destined to be a relief pitcher, Tim Lincecum certainly resembled a fairly decent starter Tuesday night.
Lincecum yielded a first-inning homer before retiring 18 of the next 20 hitters he confronted in seven assertive innings as the Giants outlasted the Toronto Blue Jays, 2-1.
Andres Torres clobbered a two-run homer off Blue Jays starter Josh Johnson in the second inning to give Lincecum a slender yet enduring lead. Lincecum allowed three hits while permitting just one runner to reach scoring position after the first inning.
