Reds pull away against Giants bullpen, lead 8-0

Tim Lincecum pitched two innings of relief for the Giants in Game 2. They were scoreless innings, and the crowd responded with boisterous cheers. Everyone was jazzed, and the fire was back.

Then the Giants were retired on .5 pitches in both of the innings that followed Lincecum. Then Jose Mijares came in and allowed a single, a walk, and a double, putting the Giants down 6-0 in a game in which they've had two runners.

Other than that, everything's going pretty well for the Giants.

The double was hit by ... aw, hell, I don't even know anymore. I think it was Jay Bruce, but it doesn't really matter. No, I checked, it was Bruce. And with one out, Ryan Hanigan singled to bring Bruce home ... oh, and as I was typing that, Drew Stubbs hit a triple to score Hanigan. Cool, cool.

The Reds are up 8-0, and Bronson Arroyo is hitting for himself because he has a one-hitter going.

There exists, somewhere in this world, a guy who is both a Reds fan and a Bills fan. At least that guy is having a half-lousy day. Take that, theoretical sports fan.
