San Francisco Giants' World Series Hopes Depend On Back-End Starters

After a brutal weekend series loss to the NL West -leading Los Angeles Dodgers , the San Francisco Giants are suddenly desperate for a win. Entering Monday, the Giants remain three games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates for the top Wild Card spot in the National League , and will seemingly guarantee themselves a slot in a one-game playoff game if they can win just seven of their final 13 games.

Tim Lincecum, Hector Sanchez and most of their teammates took to the boardwalk today for a ceremony honoring Lincecum's second no-hitter. There are now 23 plaques out there and he has two of them; the other one is for his 14-strikeout performance in Game 1 of the NLDS in 2010.

Tim Lincecum gets a rare chance to celebrate, plus lineups

Tim Lincecum and Hector Sanchez kneel to look at a new plaque on the Portwalk commemorating his June 25 no-hitter against the Padres. Tim Lincecum cannot get into a game amid legitimate speculation that he would be left off postseason rosters while he lives through this time of limbo and retraining.

Ross goes for 200-strikeout milestone vs. D-backs

The three pitchers who have accomplished the feat before him, Kevin Brown, Jake Peavy and Clay Kirby, have reached 200 strikeouts a combined five times. Oddly enough, the Padres could have two pitchers reach 200 strikeouts this season, as Ian Kennedy has 184 so far in 2014.

Dodgers vs. Giants a " with a surprise SF first baseman

Hard to believe that it's been 10 years since the Dodgers and Giants engaged in a tense head-to-head fight for the National League West title, but you do have to go back to the final weekend of the 2004 season, when the Dodgers took a one-game lead over the Giants into the penultimate game of the season and won the West on Steve Finley's ninth-inning grand slam. Which is not to say there have not been big Dodger-Giant moments since then.
