Giants Vs. Braves, NLDS Game 1: Derek Lowe, Tim Lincecum Survive Early Jams

We're underway with the nightcap in San Francisco, and through an inning of work, it's a scoreless ballgame. It wasn't easy for either pitcher, though. In the upper half, Tim Lincecum had to work around a leadoff double by Omar Infante, which he managed by getting Jason Heyward to pop out and then striking out Derrek Lee and Brian McCann.

In the bottom half, Derek Lowe erased a leadoff single by getting a Freddy Sanchez double play, and then he erased a two-out walk by getting Buster Posey to ground out.

Lincecum threw just ten of his 20 pitches for strikes, and Lowe came in at eight of 15. Neither guy looked particularly sharp, although there's plenty of time yet to work into a groove.
