Astros VS Giants
Roy VS Tim, Round 2
Tim Lincecum Roy Oswalt
1 - 0, 3.44 6 - 2, 2.83

People keep sayinig that Tim Lincecum reminds them a lot of Roy Oswalt... I guess it's only fitting that they would both face each other last week and go 7 innings each... giving up zilch. They get another chance to face off and show their stuff tonight as they go again. It's Roy vs Tim, round 2.

Roy goes out to do what he's supposed to do... stop losing streaks. The Astros have now lost 2 straight and scored a whopping 1 run in the last 2 games. If the Astros don't show a little offense, Roy's going to have a tough time. I hate these games on the west coast. Having a game start at 9:15 CST is just too late for me to watch. I can usually watch the first 4 or 5 innings or so, but then realizing that I have to get up at 5:30 the next morning usually wins me over and gets me to bed. These games are nice for our readers(Seoul) on the other side of the pond who get to watch the game in the morning... but for those of us in Texas(and even worse for those in FLA like Rastro), these games are terribly timed.

Giants Astros
Winn, CF
Lewis, RF
Klesko, 1B
Bonds, LF
Durham, 2B
Molina, C
Feliz, 3B
Vizquel, SS
Lincecum, P
Lamb, 3B
Loretta, 2B
Berkman, 1B
Lee, LF
Scott, RF
Pence, CF
Ausmus, C
Everett, SS
Oswalt, P

This is a different lineup than normal, but I can't say I'm against Lamb batting first. It's nice having 2 .300+ hitters batting in the 1 and 2 spots for a change.
