No SI jinx for Lincecum

Tim Lincecum escaped the dreaded Sports Illustrated cover jinx with a win over the Cubs tonight.

Lincecum pitched 6 solid innings, with 8 K’s, and even added an RBI single. I got home just in time to see Rich Aurilia hit a beautiful 3-run, pinch-hit homer in the 7th. Vizquel got a couple of hits too, which hopefully signals the start of the end of his horrible slump.

This is the kind of Giants team that could break my heart in September. I can see them staying close enough in the NL West to keep me hopeful until the end.
