I went to the Grizzlies game Thursday night and saw another gem tossed by Lincicum. He went seven innings this time as opposed to the five innings last Saturday night. He recorded nine strikeouts and allowed zero runs. He reached at least 96 MPH according to the stadium speed gun.
The Grizzlies went on to win 2-0 against the Tacoma Rainers in a quick 1:52 game as Jorge Campillo pitched well and had a nasty curveball going after giving up two runs with two outs in the first inning. I had fun watching Lincium warming up and checking out his long stride.
Munter came in and Wilson closed the ninth. Frandsen got an RBI single in the first. Fred Lewis played right field instead of his usual left or centerfield. Guillermo Rodriguez caught most of the game after playing in the thirteen inning game the day before and had two hits. I noticed he bounced a ball away into left field after Lincium struck out a batter and then later while throwing the ball back to the pitcher threw it past Lincium. After yesterday's throwing error, I wonder if Rodriguez has a bad arm either by injury or just poor accuracy.
