Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum lasted only 3 innings last night against Milwaukee, giving up 4 hits and 3 runs. The performance matched the shortest of his career and provided this great dialogue (from MLB.com):
Lincecum proved to be unintentionally amusing as he expressed his intent to maintain perspective.
"I'll try to take it with a grain of rice and move on," he said.
"Rice, salt, whatever. I'm half-Asian," Lincecum said.
Lincecum's outing matched Sandy Koufax, in 1966, for the briefest by a reigning Cy Young Award winner.
