History for Lincecum, victory for Giants in N.Y.

May 4, 2011BOXSCORE GIANTSVIDEOMLBPAGE MLBSCOREBOARD
NEW YORK (AP) With a boisterous bunch of orange-and-black clad fans in the crowd and weather conditions similar to home, Tim Lincecum knew the formula was right for a special night.He sure provided one.Lincecum struck out 12 to surpass Christy Mathewson for most double-digit strikeout games in Giants history and Pat Burrell hit a tiebreaking single against his favorite opponent, lifting San Francisco over the New York Mets 2-0 on Wednesday night."Windy and wet is kind of what I'm used to," Lincecum said.Lincecum (3-3) gave up five hits in seven innings, throwing 127 pitches for his most since Aug. 28, 2009. He struck out his final five batters.
URBAN: Could Lincecum be best of all time?
"Terrific job," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's one of those special guys, when he's had to turn it up a notch he can do it."Four Giants relievers completed the six-hitter with Brian Wilson working a perfect ninth for his 10th save. The Giants can finish their 10-game road trip with a sweep of the Mets on Thursday.Mike Fontenot added an insurance run with an RBI single off Chris Capuano (2-3) in the seventh and Aubrey Huff had three more hits to lift his average over .200. The defending World Series champions won two in a row for the first time since April 18-19 and have won just five of their last 13 games.The Mets struck out season-high 16 times and were 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position. New York faced a Cy Young winner for the third time in four games, going up against Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee last weekend in Philadelphia. Lincecum was the most dominant.We're a big league team, too," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "We've got to start putting the ball in play, we've got to start driving in some easy runs."
URBAN: Suddenly, a sunny road trip
The Freak needed 26 pitches to get through the first inning, yielding a one-out double to Daniel Murphy. But he didn't allow a runner to reach third until the sixth.Lincecum has three double-digit strikeout games this year and 29 for his career. Mathewson played all but one of his games for the New York Giants from 1900-1916.It's cool," Lincecum said. "I still got more pitching to do."After giving Lincecum one run of support in his last two outings - both losses - the Giants were scoreless until Burrell's RBI single.Burrell has always hit well against New York. He has 42 homers and 106 RBIs against the Mets, best off any opponent."I have some success against the Mets, especially in Philadelphia, but it hasn't been so good recently," Burrell said. "It was nice to go out there and drive in a big run for us."This time he hurt the Mets with a simple single.Fontenot led off the sixth with a walk and Huff followed a strikeout with his third hit of the game and fourth in four at-bats before Burrell's hit put them ahead.Capuano intentionally walked Miguel Tejada with two outs to load the bases. But Lincecum bounced back to the mound to end the threat.On Tuesday, Huff hit a home run in the 10th inning to lift the Giants to a 7-6 win."I'm sure the homer did a lot for him last night," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.Lincecum gave up a leadoff double to Carlos Beltran and a single to Ike Davis in the bottom of the seventh, but got Ronny Paulino to pop foul. Freddy Sanchez made the catch on the warning track beyond the Mets dugout and then bounced up to make a perfect throw that held Beltran at third."That was great by him even to keep the guy form scoring, getting the ball in quick like that," Lincecum said.The right-hander then struck out two to end his outing.Capuano gave up eight hits and two runs in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out five and walked three."I really didn't feel great with my stuff today," Capuano said. "Today was one of those games where it was kind of a battle from the get-go."NOTES: The Mets placed RHP Pedro Beato on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his pitching elbow. Lefty Mike O'Connor was brought up from Triple-A Buffalo to take his place in the bullpen. ... Giants OF Andres Torres (strained left Achilles' tendon) is going to Triple-A Fresno to play in an unknown number of rehab games, Bochy said. ... Mets SS Jose Reyes grounded out leading off in the first to snap a streak of reaching in seven straight plate appearances.

Won't be easy for interested teams to pull off double jackpot with Iguodala

Won't be easy for interested teams to pull off double jackpot with Iguodala

Andre Iguodala is a wanted man, by the Warriors, who have spent four seasons benefitting from his presence, and also by a few teams around the NBA seeking to hit the double jackpot.

That is, adding Iguodala to their team while subtracting him from the Warriors.

Understand, though, it won’t be easy to pry Iguodala away -- even if seven teams, according to an ESPN report on Tuesday, plan to chase the veteran forward when he becomes a free agent this weekend.

And while Iguodala is as delighted as he is flattered by the interest, he has a clear vision of what he wants from himself, and it goes beyond the numbers on a contract. Remember, he chose to come to the Warriors in the summer of 2013 for $48 million over four years despite being offered more by other teams.

Though Iguodala, 33, might not be willing to make the same financial sacrifice, any team that recognizes the significance of such a move has to know straight cash alone won’t be enough to lure him -- unless it’s an offer that blows his mind.

Iguodala’s mind runs too deep to be easily blown, but a deal upward of $18 per year would create a considerable breeze. And, remember, the Warriors will have Iguodala’s Bird Rights the second Kevin Durant officially declines his option.

That would provide room for the team, should it choose, to push its financial offer.

Iguodala came to the Warriors to join an alluring team with growth potential, with a new-age ownership in a location that aligned with his personal plan for his future. All those factors remain in play.

If the dollars are equal, or close to equal, Iguodala almost certainly will be back. That he realizes the folly of taking the same to go elsewhere has been related to NBCSportsBayArea.com on several occasions in recent months.

“I know they appreciate me here,” he said last month.

It was Iguodala’s arrival that pushed the team to another level. He provided a superior wing defender, a leader on the court and in the locker room and was practically perfect as an offensive complement to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, while providing a tremendous boost to a defense then built around Andrew Bogut, with Draymond Green and Thompson still on the rise.

Considering the team’s accomplishments since then, and Iguodala’s role throughout, it has worked exceedingly well for both parties. Which is why the team has placed such a high value on him.

“It’s hard to quantify it, other than two world championships,” coach Steve Kerr said recently. “And I’m not sure we’d have any without him.

“I know we wouldn’t have won two years ago without him. And probably wouldn’t have won this year, either, just based on everything that he means to us as a backup point guard, as the primary defender on LeBron, as the guy who gets us organized, who keeps us sane at times when things are getting a little out of control.

“And then, of course, the example that he sets, coming off the bench, as an All-Star, as a Finals MVP, as an Olympian,” Kerr added. “For him to willingly come off the bench and accept that role, it sets a great tone for the rest of the guys. He mentors those young guys on the bench constantly, too, and that’s a big factor for us as well.”

Now there is no mistaking the Warriors drafted Pat McCaw last June with the hope he’ll someday be able to provide much of what Iguodala has given them. Iguodala sees this, even noting during the team’s championship celebration that the rookie will be his replacement.

It was a joke. Had to be, for that day has not yet arrived, and the Warriors know it.
