The Giants' starter last night, Ryan Sadowski, needed to be introduced. Tim Lincecum needs no introduction. Last season's Cy Young winner has pitched as well, if not better in 2009. He is 1-0 against the Astros in his career, compiling a 2.13 ERA in four starts. Russ Ortiz did good work against both Edwin Jackson and Zack Grienke in his last two starts so he definitely doesn't get intimidated by the opposing starter.
