Good news for the Giants! They won't be victims of the third no-hitter in postseason history!
Bad news for the Giants! They're down 4-0 in the fifth inning, their starting pitcher's been knocked out of the game already, and the Reds' pitcher is still throwing a one-hitter.
Bronson Arroyo didn't give up a hit in the first four innings. In the bottom of the fifth, he got Buster Posey and Hunter Pence on ground-outs; at that point, no Giant had hit the ball out of the infield since the first inning. Brandon Belt ended all of that, though, with a clean single to center field.
And then Arroyo got back to business, getting Gregor Blanco on a grounder to third base.
Today's big news in San Francisco was that Tim Lincecum won't be starting for the Giants in this series. He said all the right things, and is now pitching in the top of the sixth. Pitching well, too.
