It took the Giants three extra innings to beat the Padres thanks to a 7th inning two RBI double by Jason Bartlett. The good guys would eventually give themselves scoring opportunities after that, but would not have the strength to complete the come from behind victory.
The Giants are just about eliminated from this thing, which is weird considering that it feels like there's a lot of baseball left.

I know that the goal for the MLB is to get another Wild Card team into the race, but that wouldn't really help this season's National League also-rans as the Giants are pretty well off of the Cardinals as well. And really, aren't we all just about ready for this season to be finished? The season is long enough as it is. The whole "leave them wanting more" thing is completely lost on Major League Baseball. Is it in the best interest of baseball to have two weeks of baseball left and three teams in the division completely eliminated? I still think they need to move back to a 154 game schedule. Get this thing over and done with.
In other news, knowing that Tim Lincecum has some Filipino in him, and therefore is probably incapable of growing any significant amount of facial hair, I often wonder if he must get teased a lot in the Giants clubhouse. Everybody in that place is growing a long luxurious creeper beard and Lincecum is like the youthful face. I bet Matt Cain, also being unable to grow a beard because he's a little b_tch, probably tries to use his beardlessness as an in to try to hang out with Lincecum more, but Lincecum is probably too dazed playing video games and smoking the marijuana to notice that Matt Cain's in the corner baking chocolate cupcakes with frosting made to look like Lincecum's hair. The player wives are like, "Oh can I have one?" And Cain's like, "THESE ARE FOR THE BABY BUTT FACE CLUB ONLY!" Like reeeaaaal whiny like because he's a b_tch. But little does he know that Lincecum's just in the corner smoking his weed out of a Mylar balloon, trying to get an extra buzz by rubbing his beardless face with salvia infused lotion. And then Brian Wilson's like, "Have you heard this new Bon Iver album? I'm gonna go into a cabin and when I come out, I'll have grown a beard from my scrotum!" And Matt Cain, being a little b_tch, is like, "It's called pubic hair, you idiot!" And Wilson's like, "Dude. Whatever."
