must take two: tim lincecum. after seeing the freak pitch a mere 5 days ago, i was ready for some redemption. timmy's never won in new york until tonight!!! he also broke christy mathewson's double digit strikeout record with a dozen retired hitters. on a night at citi field where giants fans outnumbered the mets contingent, it was great to see the g-men in fine form winning in a 2-0 shut out. virginia finally got to see the famed beard in action. dreams came true.
double bonus - spotted chris thile of nickel creek and punch brothers fame picking up his ticket. saw him again getting on the 7 alone at the conclusion of the game. chris is a fan of timmy's.
