Bass Caught In San Francisco, Padres Get Bit

Anthony Bass was perfect for the longest time, untouchable, no San Francisco Giants bat could get to him, he flirted with immortality for a good long while. Right into the sixth inning, perfect. All it took was the opposing pitcher to reach on an infield single. The opposing pitcher of all players, some guy named Tim Lincecum.

All that Tim Lincecum has done is to have won a couple of Cy Young awards. Now he can add something else to his resume. He broke up Anthony Bass' perfect game with two outs in the sixth inning on Saturday. And in the process, Lincecum beat Bass as the Giants came back to nip the Padres, 2-1.

As good as Bass was for six innings, Lincecum was not far behind him. The Giants ace allowed only three hits and an unearned run over eight innings, and the Padres failed to capitalize on Lincecum's four walks except for the unearned run in the third inning.

With one out, Will Venable drew a walk and then Jesus Guzman reached on a throwing error by Giants first baseman Brandon Belt. Chase Headley then walked to load the bases, and Nick Hundley hit a sacrifice fly to score Venable. But that was all the Padres offense could do against Lincecum.

After Bass lost his bid for perfection in the sixth inning, the Giants got to him in the seventh. Melky Cabrera doubled to lead off the inning, but Bass got Pablo Sandoval to fly out and then Buster Posey struck out swinging. Nate Schierholtz then hit an infield single, sending Cabrera to third base.

Brandon Belt then came up and doubled to center, driving in Cabrera and Schierholtz, and that was all that the Giants needed. Yonder Alonso made up for a fielding error by throwing out Belt at home to end the inning.

Santiago Casilla entered for Lincecum in the ninth inning and recorded his third save.

Anthony Bass was very much a tough-luck loser, going the distance on 90 pitches and giving up only the two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight. Again, the lack of consistent offense and failing to take advantage of opportunities killed the Padres, only three hits on the evening led to a failure to seriously threaten Giants pitching.


Notes:

Jeremy Hermida is the latest player to join the ranks of Padres on the disabled list. Hermida came up with a strained left adductor (yes, you probably have an adductor too, it's related to the hip but is connected to the thigh, no word on precisely which left adductor muscle is strained, as there are several on both sides), and the Padres have called up Blake Tekotte to take Hermida's spot on the roster. Tekotte was having a fine season in AAA Tucson, batting around .280 with some good power in his swing.

Sunday, the Padres will start Clayton Richard against the Giants Madison Bumgarner. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PM PDST, and can be seen via Fox Sports San Diego if you have Cox Cable or DirecTV. If you are stuck with Time Warner Cable, call them and ask if they personally hate you. They will tell you that they don't, but I wouldn't believe that until they start showing Padres games. If you're not near a television or are stuck with Time Warner, tune in on radio, XX1090 AM still loves you.
