Lincecum's in for the Giants, and the Tigers still can't score

With his 104th pitch in Game 3 of the World Series, Ryan Vogelsong walked Andy Dirks and Bruce Bochy figured that was enough. With two outs and Dirks aboard, Bochy replaced Vogelsong with Tim Lincecum, the Giants' new go-to-reliever in the middle innings. Somewhat atypically, Lincecum didn't strike out Jhonny; instead he retired Peralta on a fly ball to right-center field, where Hunter Pence made the inning-ending catch.

With Vogelsong getting credit for 5⅔ scoreless innings, San Francisco's starting pitchers now haven't given up a run since Game 6 of the NLCS, when Vogelsong gave up one run in seven innings. Oh, and it's Vogelsong's seventh straight start, dating back to September, in which he gave up one run or none. Meanwhile, Lincecum is reinventing himself before our very eyes, on baseball's biggest stage.

It's just beginning to look like the Tigers will never score again, or at least not against a Giant starting pitcher.
