CINCINNATI (AP) -- Angel Pagan led off the game with a home run, Gregor Blanco and Pablo Sandoval connected later and Tim Lincecum came out of the bullpen to help the San Francisco Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-3 on Wednesday, evening their NL division series at 2-all. The Giants can complete an unprecedented comeback on Thursday. No team has recovered from a 2-0 deficit in a best-of-five series by winning three on the road. Matt Cain, who lost the series opener and has yet to beat Cincinnati in three starts this season, will start Game 5 against Mat Latos. The Reds haven't won a home playoff game in 17 years. One thing in Cincinnati's favor -- it hasn't dropped three straight at home all season. Lincecum relieved in the fourth inning with the Giants ahead 3-2. The two-time NL Cy Young winner struck out six in 4 1-3 innings, allowing one run.

Tim Lincecum Gets Champagne Facial and Says He Knows How Chicks Feel Now (Video)

"Now I know what chicks feel like" is what my man Tim Lincecum said last night when he got a champagne facial after the San Francisco Giants beat the Reds and moved on to the NLDS.  He then dropped a little F bomb at the end of the video to cap it off.  That's why cameras in these kind of moments are the best.  Honestly can't believe we didn't hear anything...

"This Train" Has A Sense Of Humor

You know damn well that if Angel Pagan was wearing a Mets uniform the ball would have rolled to the wall, everybody on the planet earth would have scored, and Pagan would still be in left center field asking somebody what the fastest route to the ball was. Instead, he's a San Francisco Giant and this ball landed softly in his glove, and the Giants completed their comeback, winning...

Lincecum, Zito Among Least Valuable Pitchers

Over at Beyond the Boxscore, Glenn DuPaul took a look at the least valuable players this season based on what a player produced on the field compared to what the team payed him. On this list are two of the Giants pitchers, Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise to people that have watched the Giants. Neither of these guys were all that good...

Lincecum is the old Timmy again

Tim Lincecum, reliever. Sounds pretty good after all. Lincecum was demoted to the bullpen for the playoffs because his numbers were worse than Barry Zito's (especially late in the season), but the two-time Cy Young Award winner made a huge impact Wednesday in Game 4 of the National League Division Series. Out of the bullpen, he threw 4 1/3 innings for the win in the Giants...

Lincecum's relief work helps Giants survive

CINCINNATI What was once a monumental advantage for the Cincinnati Reds is now reduced to a sliver of an advantage over the San Francisco Giants. It some would say: "Advantage, San Francisco." That's because momentum is pushing hard behind the Giants after their 8-3 victory over the Reds Wednesday in Grat American Ball Park. The significance. The best-of-five series...

Former Mets Shining In Playoffs; Beltran, Pagan and O’Day Coming Up Big

The Mets’ fear in releasing Jason Bay is he would suddenly find it somewhere else. They had the same trepidation with Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo. Watching these playoffs, it is easy to see their thinking, but that doesn’t mean it is justified. Outfielders Carlos Beltran and Angel Pagan, and reliever Darren O’Day all distinguished themselves yesterday, and wouldn’t you...

That's Right Baby

Angel Pagan is excited. And damnit, he should be. Bruce Bochy gave the ball to Barry Zito yesterday, and He did his best to throw the game away (Although Bruce can now claim that the Giants have won Zito's last 12 starts when he calls upon him for the next elimination game). In the fourth inning after Jose Mijares struck out Joey Votto, Bochy brought in The Freak. Lincecum came...
