Nolasco was taken out of the game after giving up a triple to Tim Lincecum. You read that correctly. Lincecum boosted his batting average to a whole .077 with the shot to Triples Alley.

SF Giants lineup: Crawford out again, in fact all Brandons on bench

Before the 2012 season I invented a segment for our blog/podcast called “Brandon Watch”, based on the premise that the Giants could be successful if their young (and cheap) position players performed at the level of major-league caliber starters. What followed was a great defensive season from Brandon Crawford and a really nice all-around performance by Brandon Belt. There will...
