Free MLB Predictions: Reds @ Giants, 10:45 PM

 

Tim Lincecum has done almost everything possible- changed his workload between starts, reinvented his delivery, changed his diet, and hair, in recent years to get his old Cy Young form back. His first career no-hitter could possibly do the trick at last. He is two-time NL Cy Young Award winner. He is going to pitch again tonight for the Giants, giving the home fans at AT&T Park a chance to cheer his July 13 performance. He yielded a no-hitter that day at San Diego that offered the first-half highlight for the current World Series champions.

Free baseball predictions insider reports that Lincecum has taken a little time to celebrate the latest special moment in his up-and-down career, however, not too long. The right-hander had gone back to his hometown of Seattle during the All-Star break. He needed some relaxation and time away, relishing his excellent 148-pitch gem. Now, he will probably be sticking to his principle of not getting too low or too high about a particular outing and shifting to the next game with the same, steady approach.  He is going to pitch on eight days rest Monday. Lincecum has upgraded his workload between two starts, refined his consistent delivery and settled himself in a nice mood again. He is now at 5-9 with an Era of 4.26 in 19 starts for the Giants (45-52). However, that game changing victory against the Padres paved way to a six-start winless stretch in which Lincecum went 0-4.

MLB expert picks insider reports that Lincecum’s problems had earned him a bullpen spot for the postseason a year ago rather than making him a familiar place in the rotation. He finally shined in his new role, though making it crystal clear that he had plans to work back to get the top form he had exhibited at Petco Park. Lincecum is waiting for his first victory against the Reds (55-43) in his fifth instance against the team after allowing three runs in 5 1-3 innings of a 3-0 loss at Cincinnati on July 2. He's at 0-2 with an ERA of 6.85 in the series. It is not true that he is spending time thinking about such statistics or any type of hype surrounding his no-no, and No. 7 since the franchise moved West to San Francisco in 1958 and the 15th in franchise history. Getting back to track takes palpable amount of time. That is something Lincecum has focused on with every start and each positive step he made.

Weekly MLB picks insider informs that the Reds won their first pair out of three games against Pittsburgh through the weekend but lost Sunday's finale 3-2, which made their deficit of three behind the Pirates for the first wild card and five games behind St. Louis in the NL Central. They have now hit the trip for an 11-match with a 4 1/2-game lead for the second wild-card spot. Cincinnati is 5-11 in its last ‘four more games than a dozen’ away from Great American Ball Park. Bronson Arroyo who is at 8-7 with 3.42ERA has a current 4.98 ERA on the road, which is nearly double of his 2.58 home mark. He was pretty outstanding in his latest start in enemy’s territory. He had held Atlanta to three hits and one run over seven innings on July 12 in a 4-2 win. He's at 6-0 with a 1.45 ERA in past nine starts against NL opponents. The Reds are at 8-0 in Arroyo's starts this time following only one loss. Lincecum will also look for offering help to his team bounce back from a loss after the Giants failed to complete a sweep of Arizona with Sunday's 3-1 loss.
