Things are happening right now in game five of the 2010 World Series. After the Edgar Renteria home run in the top of the seventh that put the Giants up 3-0, Tim Lincecum gave up a solo home run to Nelson Cruz with one out to get the Rangers on the board. Vladimir Guerrero had struck out previously. Ian Kinsler worked to a full count and then drew a walk after the home run. Pitching coach Righetti made his way to the mound and after a brief discussion, Lincecum stayed in the game to handle his business.
Then it was all business for Lincecum, who's velocity was slightly down. David Murphy and Bengie Molina were both struck out swinging to end the inning with the Giants leading 3-1.
