Pitchers taking control in Game 1

10/27/2010

SAN FRANCISCO -- Things are shaping up to be settled late in this one and likely with the bullpens in the game. Tim Lincecum gave up a run in the first and second, and Cliff Lee got dinged in the third, giving up two runs in a 32-pitch inning.

But Lincecum has retired six of seven and Lee shut down the Giants in order in the fourth on just 12 pitches. Heading to the top of the fifth, it's 2-2 and it looks like getting any more runs off the two starters is going to be difficult.
