- Too much Lincecum (until the 8th)
- Too many Bengie Molina triples (1)
- Too little, too late on the Dodger rally
The one positive was that the Dodgers managed to turn a hopeless 7-0 game against the reigning Cy Young winner into a kinda-sorta-might-have-a-chance with an 8th inning rally. But the Giants held on to win 9-4, sending the Dodgers home after a 4-5 road trip.
James McDonald will pitch against Josh Geer and the Padres tomorrow night at 7:10.
