This was already bad. This was already bad enough for the Rangers when they saw Cliff Lee get knocked out in the bottom of the fifth. At that point, the Giants had scored three runs in the inning to take a 5-2 lead, and they'd gotten themselves into the Ranger bullpen.
Then it got worse. So much worse. Darren O'Day came in out of the bullpen to face Juan Uribe. O'Day fell behind 2-0, missing with a pair of outside sliders. He tried to come back inside with a fastball, and Uribe was waiting for it, putting a good swing on the ball and driving it deep over the left-center fence.
Uribe's blast kept the crowd on its feet and turned a 5-2 thriller into an 8-2 blowout. The inning didn't even end there, as there was still time for a hit batter and a fielding error before O'Day was able to record the third out.
A six-run fifth inning has the Giants up by a very comfortable margin, and though there's ordinarily some worry that the starting pitcher gets cold sitting in the dugout for so long, Lincecum actually came to the plate twice in the frame, so his blood is pumping. All he needs to do now is pitch easy and get hitters out.
