San Francisco is 1.5 games back of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and it can get within a half-game with a winon Sunday Night Baseball. They’ll hand the ball to Lincecum, who is 4-6 with a 4.70 ERA.
Lincecum will face young Julio Teheran, who has a 3.62 ERA and is 4-3. Teheran pitched seven solid innings earlier in the year against the Giants, and Lincecum shut down the Braves over seven innings on Mothers Day.
Now, he’s looking to do the same thing on Father’s Day against a potent but strikeout-heavy lineup.
First pitch is at 5:05 PM PST, and a recap will be up right after the conclusion of the game.
