Liberty High School graduate Tim Lincecum wasn’t at his sharpest but he pitched well enough Wednesday as the San Francisco Giants stunned the Texas Rangers 11-7 in the opener of the World Series at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.

What was expected to be a low-scoring, pitchers duel between Lincecum and Texas’ Cliff Lee never developed. The Giants, who fought back from an early 2-0 deficit, lit up Lee for seven runs.

Lincecum pitched 5 1/2 innings, struck out just three and surrendered eight hits. However, he picked up the victory. When the Giants’ ace was relieved in the sixth inning, he was given a standing ovation by fans.

    I have observed Tim Lincecum over the post-season. He is a fierce competitor and strives hard to be the best he can be. I hope he continues his success in major league baseball and goes on to be in the company of other Washington greats like Ryne Sandberg (MLB) and John Stockton (NBA). He did a great job of turning around an early deficit in last nights game to come out a winner.
