But then a rally got started. Ian Kinsler fought back from a two-strike count to draw a ten-pitch walk. Bengie Molina ripped a high and tight slider into left field to score Kinsler all the way from first. Mitch Moreland hit an infield single off of Lincecum's body to put runners on the corners. And pinch-hitter David Murphy grounded a single through the hole into right field to score Molina.
Murphy's single made it an 8-4 ballgame, and Bruce Bochy came out to remove Lincecum. His line:
93 pitches (64 strikes)
Bochy called on Santiago Casilla to work out of a two-runner mess. Casilla was able to do just that, working back from a 2-0 count to strike out Elvis Andrus on an inside slider. The Giants have a four-run lead going into the bottom of the sixth.
