SAN FRANCISCO The scene is becoming all too familiar for Tim Lincecum as he watches cheap Paul Goldschmidt jersey launch home run after home run.
Seven of them, to be exact. And two in seven days.
Lincecum surrendered the Arizona star’s three run homer in the first inning and a third inning sacrifice fly that sent the Diamondbacks jerseys past the San Francisco Giants jerseys 7 3 on Wednesday night.
“I had wholesale jerseys to get my out any way I could, and I didn’t get any outs,” Lincecum said. “I just have to start leaning on a little bit more of my strength and not necessarily his weaknesses. I know he’s got some holes here and there, but I have to mix up my pitch counts and my pitch routines.”
cheap Gerardo Parra jersey hit a two run homer and finished a double shy of the cycle, while Eric Chavez added an RBI triple for his first hit in his first start of the year for Arizona.
Goldschmidt is batting .542 (13 for 24) with seven homers and 17 RBIs all time against Lincecum, including a two run homer last week at Chase Field.
His latest homer marked the 22nd time an opposing right handed hitter homered to AT Park’s right field.
“He’s got to make better pitches on him, that’s pretty simple,” Giants jerseys manager Bruce Bochy said. “He got that ball up. Next time, he threw a decent slider, but that ball was up, too. It’s all about executing your pitches and you have to keep your focus. You can’t think about it.”
Goldschmidt insists his fortunes could turn in a hurry against Lincecum, and that he doesn’t think about the streak.
Yet, Goldschmidt has been such a nemesis for Lincecum, the exasperated pitcher said last week he might have to throw underhanded to try to stymie the slugger.
“I was kind of worried it may go foul, but I think the wind actually helped keep it fair. It was right down the line,” Goldschmidt said. “You know Lincecum’s a very good pitcher. So you just go up there and try to have a good at bat and try to hit the ball hard, and fortunately I was able to get one there in the first inning. It really doesn’t change. Try to have a good at bat, try to keep it simple.”
Arroyo was staked to a nice lead early and worked five innings to earn his first win since joining the D backs in February. He had a no decision against the Giants jerseys last Thursday.
Parra led off the game with a triple, cheap Martin Prado jersey walked and Goldschmidt sent a 1 1 fastball into the elevated right field arcade. He added a sacrifice fly in the third, then was booed each time he stepped into the batter’s box in the late innings.
“Hopefully the streak continues,” manager Kirk Gibson said. “It’s amazing.”
Parra connected for his first homer of the year with two outs in the fourth.
Angel Pagan singled in the first and has hit safely in all nine games for the Giants jerseys, batting .462 with seven multihit games
Lincecum (0 1) lasted just four innings, tagged for seven runs and seven hits. The right hander received a $35 million, two year deal in late October to stay put with San Francisco rather than test free agency.
He said he might be trying too hard against Goldschmidt.
“Right now, I’m just falling into backward counts where he’s pretty dangerous,” Lincecum said.
cheap Pablo Sandoval jersey went 1 for 4 and is off to a quiet start hitting .143 for San Francisco. Manager Bruce Bochy is confident that even though the Giants jerseys have tabled talks about a contract extension for the third baseman, it won’t affect the 2012 World Series MVP on the field.
